“Peace On Your Wings” is a new musical inspired by the true story of Sadako
Sasaki and her thousand paper cranes. Set in post-war 1950′s Japan, it explores
the lives of students at a middle school in Hiroshima as they face the terminal
illness of their friend amidst their own adolescent drama. The musical score
combines modern pop and Japanese influences to create a unique, uplifting, and
inspiring show that shares the message of peace told through the powerful
voices of youth.
