‘Summerland’ – an original musical by Anika Johnson, Barbara Johnston and Suzy Wilde will be performed at the 2015 Toronto Fringe Festival. The Breakfast Club meets Peter Pan meets Lord of the Flies in this groundbreaking new musical about 10 high school students who find themselves stranded between worlds after a highway bus accident. Incredibly moving, often hilarious and compelling from start to finish, Summerland explores and celebrates what it is to be a teen today.
