I would also suggest that those interested in original works of musical theatre check out "Changing Voices", a brand-new two-act show conceived and written by and with a cast of talented area teens! http://evanston.patch.com/groups/announcements/p/etc-music-school-presents-changing-voices-an-original-musical
