FoodPlay Productions, an Emmy-Award-winning company is casting "Trish's Awesome Nutrition Mission,” a play whose purpose is to help promote good nutrition and healthy living habits among minority and urban youth. Geared to school grades K-6, it's a high-energy piece filled with music, dance and humor, featuring two delightful characters.
First there's Trish, the title character--a rambunctious, joyful, Cool Kid totally devoted to good nutrition and exercise. Then there's Trish's grandmother, Mama Rose--a loving and kind spirit, but someone who is too set in her ways with making too many poor nutrition and exercise choices.
