Just Like Us, performed by the Bastrop Opera House Youth Academy, is an important play for children as it teaches them about prejudice in a simplistic, non-preachy manner. The story is told by an old tree, who stands neglected in a park. On one side of the park live the poetry loving Greens. On the other side of the park the Blues reside, where they enjoy playing musical instruments. Sadly, there is nothing but intolerance, fear and hatred between the Greens and the Blues. Why? No one quite remembers, but these ingrained feelings diminish the quality of everybody’s lives, including the poor tree, who is left abandoned in the middle. When a storm brings the aqua and purple Allina to the park, both the Greens and the Blues learn some eye-opening lessons about each other and about life.
Event is both live and livestreamed.
