Academy of The Gifted Presents Musical Drama DEM LEAN ON ME BOYS
Posted By: Kali McGee on September 25, 2018

The most musically talented and unforgettable performers on one stage! First time EVA!!! STARRING RIFF, the 5 songbirds from Eastside High in the ground breaking and classic film "Lean On Me" who stunned audiences with their harominic rendention of the school song "Fare Eastside High"! Surrounded by a phenomenal All Star Cast Starring Jermaine Hopkins as "Sam" and a talented host of teenagers featuring

Anti-Bullying Activist "CHLOE OLIVIA".

25 YEARS AGO it all begin with five childhood friends who were caught singing in the bathroom by principal Joe Clark. At an early age they realized that they had a gift of song! The group was formed and soon gained fame and fortune, but as time passed things slowly begin to change. The group faced challenges that turned into turmoil and rolled over into their personal lives slowly tearing the group apart. As brothers they never thought that a woman would come between them, suddenly the fame and stardom dismantled and forced them to part ways. Each conquering their demons and destinies.

25 years later, will they be able to overcome their challenges, or will they allow it to destroy them and their legacy? Be in the house to see what happens to "Dem Lean On Me Boys"! The reunion will leave you on the edge of your seat, invested in their survival and encouraged by their story.

Produced & Written by William "Worm" Blount

Co-Written & Directed by Donald Gray
