Planet Connections Hosts A Musical About A Family Becoming A Family Played By the Family

Happily Ever After? well, here's a musical about a family becoming a family played by the family: Happy If Happy When: A Family Musical

Part of the 10th anniversary season of Planet Connections Theatre Festivity

This is the story of Kimerer LaMothe & Geoffrey Gee and their five children. A family of seven who moved to the country to follow their dreams.

While mom & dad needed a place to grow their art ... the kids wanted to grow other things. However, their impression of handling a farm and actually doing it showed itself to be two very different things. As each person goes through their own journey, they, like the farm itself - blossom into stronger people. They all come to a deeper realization of how much they need one another to create their own works of art.

The LaMothe/Gee family is played by [wait for it]
THE ACTUAL LAMOTHE/GEE FAMILY.

Who better to share ... and sing ... the lessons learned by
Kimerer, Geoffrey, Jordan, Jessica, Kyra, Kai, and Leif than...

Kimerer. Geoffrey. Jordan. Jessica. Kyra. Kai. ... and Leif.

Here Art doesn't imitate life ... it is LIFE.
