Production Description

Casting "The Search for a Dream," a heartfelt story of a boy who struggles to express his passion for dance. He lives in a society where dance is just a form of entertainment. His traditional family sees it as Bohemian lifestyle and a homosexual career choice. Meanwhile, at school they removed the art program due to lack of interest from the students, leaving the protagonist feeling alone and unprotected, with a huge urge to dance. Afraid he'll be rejected, he fights the dancer inside of him and tries to be someone he is not. He is bullied by other boys at school and he doesn't speak with his grandmother who he lives with; instead they fight all the time. What will he do: face his fears or submit?
