“Zanna, Don’t!” July 27 – 29 Out Front Theatre Com­pany 999 Brady Ave., At­lanta, GA 30318 Tick­ets: $20 www.out­frontthe­atre.com would be our first ed­u­ca­tional show.”

To Dem­low, the show man­ages to be en­ter­tain­ing while send­ing a mes­sage.

“I think it is be­yond a work that is about ac­cept­ing LGBTQ peo­ple. It’s about lov­ing ev­ery­one no mat­ter what flaw they come with,” he said. “It’s a per­fect mes­sage for the stu­dents we are work­ing with and reach­ing here. In the world to­day, there is so much ha­tred and neg­a­tiv­ity. This show is so pos­i­tive and uplift­ing, with char­ac­ters learn­ing to ac­cept oth­ers.”

The ma­jor­ity of the pro­duc­tions of “Zanna, Don’t!” have been staged with older cast mem­bers. The cast here, though, is full of high school adults and young adults, ages 16 – 23.

“They are in school or just out of school, so the themes are rel­e­vant to all of them,” Dem­low said.

The show’s run is brief – just a week­end – due to sched­ul­ing and it be­ing the com­pany’s first ed­u­ca­tional piece. Yet, if the run is suc­cess­ful, Dem­low will be happy to con­sider bring­ing it back.
