Healing Performances for Newtown

Newtown, Conn. (WTNH) – Hundreds of flowers, gifts and makeshift memorials were set up following the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

It was all in an effort to provide comfort, and maybe start the path to healing. In the wake of those shootings, Michael Baroody set up the 12-14 foundation a non-for-profit organization whose mission is to bring strength and healing through the performing arts to young people in the Newtown area.

In addition to offering arts programming that encourages community, creativity and collaboration, it is working with the Yale School of Management to implement leadership training in all of its endeavors to offer its participants the tools for success in whatever path they choose to pursue. The 12.14 Foundation is also working towards building a performing arts center in Newtown as a living remembrance of the tragic events of December 14th, 2012.

Performances this year include “The 101 Dalmatians Musical” and “A Rockin’ Midsummer Nights Dream”.
