"Diversity and unity are the cornerstones of Chaya and Monack's artistic vision. Their creation weaves a magical tapestry that resonates deeply across generations. The message of embracing differences, forging bonds, and embracing inner magic remains timeless and inspiring.
Behind the scenes, the dedicated efforts of Camps Director Samantha Jalajel and the skilled crew shine. The performances showcased three groups of talented youngsters aged 7 to 14, demonstrating their skills through workshops and county-wide shows. These workshops doubled as valuable "field tests," offering insights into audience reactions and guiding continuous script enhancements.

The result is an art piece that captured hearts, now poised for an exciting transition to the small screen as a TV pilot adaptation.
As the echoes of the final curtain call resonate through Falls Church's Providence REC studio, the enchantment lives on. Moonlit Wings Productions is already charting a path forward, with plans for a captivating TV adaptation that will solidify the legacy of this heartwarming tale."
