What to make of the youth today? Plagued with the problems of growing up in the digital age, the average teenager is distracted, over-extended and has no time for creativity. Right? Not so at Turn of River Middle School where a group of students, referred to as the Soul Writers, met with teacher Dawn Greco to write an original drama based on the experiences of middle school students.

The writers collaborated weekly to explore the issues and drama that every teen goes through; the need to belong, the battle with peer pressure and the struggle of always feeling like there are fears to overcome. The Soul Writers then took these ideas and wove them into a drama that tells the story of a day at school where kids learn that they are not alone with their problems and that there are ways to face their fears and overcome their roadblocks. Students also worked with music teacher Darryl Gregory to create the score. The students learned how to set words to music and how to create music that goes along with the drama happening on stage. The music is catchy and really creates a sense of what the characters are going through.

This original student written musical, “Nothing to Fear” will be performed on Wednesday, June 6 at 7:00 pm in the Turn of River Middle School auditorium. In lieu of an admission cost, students and teachers are requesting a donation to be given to The Bennett Cancer Center. For any additional information about “Nothing to Fear” or about the Project Soul please contact Turn of River’s main office at 977-4284.
