WTG Announces Production of CHILDREN'S LETTERS TO GOD
by BWW News Desk - Aug 12, 2016

Based on the international best-selling book by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall, and inspired by the international bestseller of the same name, Children's Letters to God is a musical that follows the lives of five young friends as they voice beliefs, desires, questions and doubts common to all people but most disarmingly expressed by children.
