To facilitate the creation of a new stage play that will encourage and inspire youth and their families to make right choices when confronted with bullying, physical and gun violence, and adult exploitation of youth.
Power Moves is a stage play about a young, talented, popular high school basketball player who has to make choices when confronted with bullying, physical and gun violence, adult exploitation of youth, and social responsibility.
Playwright and producer, Cheick Dukuly, teams up with LaSonya Thompson (Executive Producer), Barrington Wright (Associate Producer), and Alex Franklyn (Director of Photography & Editor), to offer a touching, uplifting, and enlightening journey of the main character, Ricky Wilson.
Power Moves will challenge, inspire, and confront social issues in a creative way. It will also create special opportunities for constructive dialogue among parents, youth and their peers.
The crowdfunding campaign facilitates the creation and marketing of the play.
Ten percent of proceeds from the performances will be donated to scholarships for youth.
