From June 6-10, incoming freshmen through outgoing college freshmen will create and perform an original musical production during the in-person Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts workshop at Hays High School. In just five days, participating students will conceive, write, choreograph, compose, design, rehearse and perform an original piece of musical theater in collaboration with a staff of professional artists.
