||And a Child Shall Lead
BEAT presents the powerful, heartrending and yet, heartwarming full length play entitled: And a Child Shall Lead, written by Michael Slade.
The play is based on true events and is the story of the brave children (ages 7-17) held in the Terezin, Czecheslovakia ghetto by the Nazis during World War II. These children defied their captors by secretly conducting a school where they created art, music, and poetry, and wrote an underground newspaper that documented life in the ghetto. The actors will lead the audience through their captivity by sharing the deep relationships, life-threatening challenges, and simple joys experienced by the inspirational children of Terezin.
