Alex’s true story reminds us all that a single person can change the world – one act, or even one cup, at a time.

More Praise for 'Lemonade Girl'
“… a testament to what Youth Theatre can be: stirring, emotional and fearlessly tackling tough subjects. While this topic, on the outside, may seem too heavy for a young audience, I would argue that it does exactly what live theatre was designed to do: to create empathy; to help guide audiences through these tough emotions by allowing them to experience those emotions through the characters on the stage.”
“I somehow left the theater crying (along with most other adults) but also felt uplifted and encouraged that there are still good people in the world and that positive change is still possible through kindness, love, and persistence. Bad things happen, but there is always good, even if you have to look a little harder to find the good. The good is there, and we cannot lose sight of our horizon to recognize its existence.
