Best Foot Forward
Music by Brandon Scott Grayson
Creede Repertory Theatre Young Audience Outreach Tour, 2019
Sawyer McNally really wants the Dance Starz crown, but the competition is fierce, and “Lil G” Gonzalez has all the right moves. When bad weather forces the two dancers to spend time together, Sawyer learns that there are many ways to be a winner. An original, bilingual musical, BEST FOOT FORWARD exposes students to a variety of music and dance styles, promotes self-awareness and encourages friendship across boundaries of geography and experience.
Cast: 2+, gender neutral, any ethnicity
"This is a lovely, funny, moving, and totally engaging YA musical that celebrates cultural differences and uses dance beautifully as a metaphor. Highly recommended for the elementary school set (or, frankly, anyone)." -- playwright Skye Robinson Hillis
