‘Whiz Kid Musical’ project aims to make a themed musical with Barış Manço’s songs and put it on stage by bringing Turkish and Syrian children together. This musical written by Merve Gezen and Elif Aydemir, is based on the subjects of friendship, tolerance, education, love and respect.
The production brings together children from different backgrounds who are living in Gaziantep. Seventeen children and young adults are trained in professional acting, improvisation, singing and dance at the level of a conservatory education. The participants not only improve their artistic skills, but also strengthen their confidence. The children learn how to work together and build strong relationships in a creative surrounding.
