Many of the children suffer from shyness and the performance is a means to help them break out of that and do better in social situations, especially in school, officials said.

The production boasts a professional lighting system, sound system, wireless micrphones, vocal teacher and musician, all paid for through ticket sales over the last four years, said Tammy Earnest, director of the play.

Some area businesses, such as Home Depot, sponsor the performances by donating building materials and other needed materials, Earnest said.

The performance will take place at the American Legion building, 159 North Cullen Avenue, with a 7 p.m. performance on Friday, Jan. 10, a 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. performance on Saturday, Jan. 11 and a 3 p.m. performance on Sunday, Jan. 12.

Tickets for adults are $10. Kids under 12 get in for $5. Seniors get in for $8 and Glendora employees get in for $5.
