“Sir Charles T. McStuffings” is an original musical written by Playwright, Wendy White and the children residing at the Shepherd’s Way/HOPE South Florida homeless shelter.  The musical will be performed by the children, and their “grown-up actor counterparts,” the New Light Players. Original art by the children will be on exhibit and a film produced by film-maker Justin Hearn will be featured, portraying the making of “Sir Charles T. McStuffings”.

The children are all multi-talented and born to be on the stage!” states Wendy White. “My dream is to help children learn how to express themselves artistically via playwrighting, painting and music, giving them joy and hope to rise above their circumstances.”

“HOPE South Florida is a partnership, a lead organization in a network of partner churches and organizations working together to provide a holistic Christian response to homelessness in our community. The Shepherd's Way/HOPE South Florida provides shelter and life skill classes to homeless and hurting families throughout Broward County, crossing denominational lines, Protestants and Catholics alike came together, united to serve individuals and families living on the streets.”  For more information visit:
