Blanchard Theatre Arts presents Children's Letters to God this Friday, December 1st at 7:00PM and Saturday, December 2nd at 1:30 and 7:00PM at the Blanchard Middle School located at 14 West Street. General admission tickets for evening performances are $10 and Saturday matinee tickets are $5.

The Children's Letter to God is a musical comedy and is based on the international best-selling book of the same day by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall. The musical is not religious in nature but rather explores common life issues - turning 13, divorce, loss of pet, wanting to be like everyone else, holidays, first love, sibling rivalry, challenges of not being athletic and moving away - through the lives of five young friends. Children's Letters to God is appropriate for all ages.

If you have any questions please see Mrs. Wolber or Mrs. Pastore.
