What is Speak Life The Musical?

Since 2001 All Access Productions has been touring with our original musical entitled Speak Life The Musical. The story follows the lives of four high school students in various social roles within their school. it gives insight into their public persona and their private struggles. The talented, international cast performs a professionally produced musical, complete with dancing, singing, acting and video segments to give impact to their message, challenging students to become agents of change in their schools. Speak Life The Musical is unique. Music, costumes, scenes and characters are updated yearly in order to remain true to the styles and trends of today. Schools and organizations can use this life-changing tool year after year.

What is the message of the musical?

Speak Life The Musical confronts the ongoing issue of bullying and violence in America’s schools and local communities. The production targets key issues like bullying, cyberbullying, teen violence, teen suicide, image, self-worth, popularity, high expectations by adults and peers and difficult relationships, among others. Bullying has become an epidemic within our culture leading to thousands of teen suicides, multiple school shootings and other violent acts in America’s recent history. Speak Life The Musical gives a voice to the often silenced victims, challenging teens and adults with powerful tools for CHANGE. We also offer The Workshop as a follow up to provide a practical and personal application for each student.

What if my school can't afford it?

Many schools have government funding they are required to use each year to bring in programs like ours. Check with your local school district. There are also many grants (government & private) available to schools for programs like ours. Take the time to research your state and community foundations, you may find our program can be fully covered with little to no expense to the school or organization. Community fundraiser often hosted by the PTA can also provide excellent funding opportunities. Our best idea for providing funding is the Cre8 Change Project. What is that you ask?

How far in advance should we book?

BOOK NOW! We often plan our tours in the states and cities that express the most interest in our program. Currently All Access Productions only tours during certain months of the school year. As funding becomes available we will offer more tours both nationally and internationally. Our goal is to see “Speak Life The Musical” available to every school and community across the nation! We would love to come to your community first, so send us a booking request.

As a parent, can I attend the musical?

YES. In addition to the daytime performances, we offer schools and organizations an evening Community Performance (upon scheduling availability). Bullying, violence, and suicide are community issues and we feel strongly that parents and adults need the life-saving message of Speak Life The Musical for the most effective change to take place within the culture of the community. We encourage schools and organizations to have community performances so they can invite parents, other schools and members of the community to experience the musical. Parents are the key. CHANGE begins at home.
