Local teen writes his own musical about bullying
That photo there is local teens Elliot Wehlre, Byron Chan, Sam Turgeon-Brabazon and Paige Cheverie-Sulley, rehearsing a high school musical. It's not your typical musical fare -- it deals with some heavy, mature themes like bullying and contemplation of suicide. And it's the project of Wehlre, who wrote the play and all the songs. The CBC's Kate Porter visited him in rehearsal.
You can see Break Before Bend at Centrepointe Theatre March 18th and 19th.
