It’s a big production on a big stage.
And it has everything you want to see in a musical – murder, intrigue and the quest for love. Who would have thought it was all written, directed and produced by a high school student.
Her name is Mikayla Davic, and she has been working hard to put on her production called, “Murder On 34th Street.”
The fans and the money are rolling in for the first of three performances and it’s all for a good cause. All proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Foundation families.READ MORE: PTL Links: Nov. 29, 2021
“I just thought it was important to give them a glimpse of happiness and let them forget about their illnesses even for a day,” says Davic.
This girl is no rookie. She did this same thing last year. Her musical raised enough money to send two families to Disney World.
She’s also set a goal of raising $75,000 for Make-A-Wish by the time she graduates.
“I know as a parent that my daughter is dedicated to doing this every year, and at the end of the day, the benefit is tremendous and it’s great for me and my wife and Mikayla as well,” says Mike Davic, Mikayla’s dad.MORE NEWS: Monroeville Bike Shop Devastated By Fire Reopening At New Location
