The Spartanburg Youth Theatre is excited to open their 2018-2019
season with Grace for President, The Musical Oct. 5-6 at the Chapman Cultural Center.
One day in 3rd grade history class, Grace Campbell realizes there has never been a female president, so she decides to run for class
president and inspires a school election! Through the throes of campaigning and pep rallies, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find the fun and
hilarity in the wonderful world of politics.
This highly educational and contagiously energetic musical will have audience members dancing in the aisle. History class has never been this much fun! Based on the inspiring children’s book by Kelly DiPucchio, Grace for President is a
show for all ages.
The cast and crew of Grace for President is made up of local youth in grades 3 -12, supporting
the Spartanburg Youth Theatre’s mission of producing theatre “by youth, for youth.”
“Grace for President tells the delightful story of one brave girl’s unique journey to leadership.
Audiences are sure to be inspired by Grace and her classmates, whose tough decisions remind
us that, no matter how big or how small, each and every one of our votes—and our voices—
count,” Connor Vetter, Director of Grace for President.
This show is appropriate for all ages.
