Music composed by Andrew Grace, Sarah Hanzel, Jami Lynn, Mike Lemay, and Tyler Brink. Choreographed by Sara Olivier, Karah Haug, Alie Martin, and Katelinn Ohrtman. Production design and direction by Heather Pickering. Lighting design by John Easton, Jr. Filmed by Randal Iverson of Iverson Productions, this digitally shared production can be viewed from the safety and comfort of your living room.
Hope has been shown to make people happy, broaden and build minds, improve social relationships, strengthen immune systems, relieve stress, and motivates positive reactions that will lead to positive results according to psychologist, Charles R. Snyder. It was with these ideas in mind that Flutter Productions set out to create an evening filled with hope. A challenge was issued to past performers to submit an idea for an original performance piece based on hope. The call was answered by several individuals and a delightful smorgasbord of pieces sprung to life.
