The cast and crew explained the process of transforming a book into a musical.
Actors performed songs and scenes from the show and students joined in.
The experience led to a dialogue on acceptance and tolerance, and gave the students some hands on time with a crew of experienced performers.
The workshops are being supported by a grant from Erie Arts and Culture, Erie Gains, Gannon University and the Erie Playhouse.
