MILFORD, PA — A cast of fifth and sixth graders from Delaware Valley Elementary School (DVES) will present “Letters to Daddy,” a musical with an anti-bullying message, at the Delaware Valley High School auditorium on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 at 7 p.m., and on Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m.

Filled with singing, dancing and entertainment, this is the first production ever presented by DVES students.

Fifth grader Ashlynn Weston, who plays the main character’s younger sister, said, “Bullying should be stopped because nobody deserves to be treated cruelly or roughly. This play is important to me because we can send a message to the crowd and to others about being bullied. I hope this play will encourage others to stand up to bullies and change the world. We have to start somewhere.”

Cost of admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children. Call 570/296-1822 or 1823 for tickets or for information.
