Starting this Friday, Mar. 4, the VSA Arts of Loudoun County will be performing "Spectrum’s Journey," a heartwarming story about a colorful and vain butterfly who is the victim of a jealous prank but as a result, meets a variety of animals who show him that inner beauty stands out more than outer beauty.
The second original VSA show this season, the musical is written by one of its veterans, VSA participant Mary Kate Ryan-Griffith. VSA of Loudoun calls the Franklin Park Arts Center its home and it is truly special as people of all abilities grace its shows. The most endearing aspect of VSA is that people with all abilities get to shine onstage. "I feel comfortable because it includes everyone," says Sophia Schoppert, who portrays Amarillo the butterfly in "Spectrum’s Journey." Griffith hopes that through the show the audience will see what VSA is all about – that there is inner beauty and outer beauty, but your inner self is the most beautiful part. Performances will be held at the Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville on the weekends of Mar. 4 and 11. Tickets are available via the VSA website at vsaloudoun.org.
