On April 4 and 5, 2014 at 7 p.m., the GCAA Musical Theater Department presented the "Power of One."  The show played to enthusiastic audiences on the 6th floor makeshift performance hall (as the Sun Theater is in the final stages of preparation next door).

Mr. Keith Williams was the Director and Choreographer. The production itself was written by the GCAA students.

Mr. Williams states that the kids are working hard at making this a first rate production, and "are learning a great deal about the production of musical theater." He urges that the GCAA community support the show by attending one of the two performances. "You'll hear the voice of young urban Americans all across America. It is the voice of students yearning to be heard."

Williams explains that this is both a fundraiser for the department, and that the ticket proceeds will be used to defray what has turned out to be an expensive production, including the costs of costumes, an elaborate set and live musicians.
