The Broadway style production will leave the audience mesmerized and motivated to make a STAND! STAND the Musical will explore social justice issues pulled from today’s culture and headlines! We STAND with Hartford Youth… Where do you STAND! This year, ActUp Theater will highlight, resiliency through peer pressure, prisoner justice, bullying, cultural identity, the Black Lives Matter movement, joblessness, safety, and emancipation proclamation “Freedom isn’t Free!”.

If We Don’t…Who Will?

We at ActUp consciously want to have a louder calling than the streets for the youth! The audience will see a mother’s spiritual journey to find her son that has taken to the streets, a Hispanic family that have to relocate, and a family who deal with when home invasion. These stories are told and intertwined with dynamic dances and inspirational songs that gives the audience a refreshing take on a musical!
