Iowa Teen Presents HEMOPHILIA: THE ZOOMSICAL to Raise Awareness for Disorder

Article Pixel

An Iowa teen has spent the last three months in virtual rehearsals for Hemophilia: The Zoomsical, as featured in The Gazette.

Asa Kelley, diagnosed at birth with severe hemophilia A, was cast in a California program for a Breaking Through acting workshop. Those were cancelled as the current global health crisis continued to worsen.

But now, he and 23 other teens from across the country will perform "Hemophilia: The Zoomsical!" at 7 p.m. Friday on Facebook Live.

The hourlong musical focuses on scenarios these teens with varying degrees of hemophilia, might go through.

Just like the inaugural Hemophilia: The Musical!, Hemophilia: The Zoomsical! is for, about, and inspired by people of the bleeding disorders community. Hemophilia: The Zoomsical took real quotes, stories, and memories from young people of the community and turned them into a full-fledged theatrical performance you won't want to miss!
