Shine On – A New Musical Based on The Story of Ryan White

SHINE ON - Rehearsals

Written & Directed by Craig Whitcombe

Performance dates – May 26th, 27th & 28th

This brand new piece of theatre was written specifically for the youth performers here in Hendricks County.  

This truly promises to be a unique piece of theatre that will only be seen this one time.  


Using the unique storytelling gifts of Musical Theatre these young performers share the true story of a teenager from Kokomo,Indiana.  In the early 1980’s hemophiliac Ryan White contracts the AIDS virus via a contaminated blood product. Fear spread in the local community resulting in Ryan being prevented from returning to school.
