TA8 Play

And a Child Shall Lead

This is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the “Jewish city” established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty — playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper — all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war.

Directed by Nico Torrez
Stage Managed by Kaelin Fuld
Featuring the WW Theater Arts Classes of ’23 & ’24, with Guest performances by the WDP Class of ’26
