Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and it can take on many forms. For one individual, witnessing a performance of Mechanicsburg High School’s iconic 2014 production, “Forever Young”, was enough to inspire an entire play about the winter guard activity.
From a Southeast Missouri State University Press Release:
March 1st – 5th is the world premiere of The Winter Guard Play by Avery Deutsch at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO (1 1/2 hours south of St. Louis). This play is the winner of the 2022 Lanford Wilson New American Play Festival national competition that the university hosts every summer.
