The Boy & the Giftless Tree THE MUSICAL
Organized by: Carolyn Paige
My name is Carolyn Paige and I am a local author & playwright of Newport News, Va. I have published my first children's book titled: The Boy & the Giftless Tree. It's about an eight year old boy named Timothy who's an only child raised by a single parent and he anticipates waking Christmas morning to a tree filled with gifts however much to his dismay, he's greeted by a giftless tree. Poor Timothy almost loses his faith in the spirit of Christmas but his mother teaches him , it's in his most time of despair that he have faith in God and how God moves in His own time. Soon came a knock at the door and Timothy's faith is restored!! I was homeless sleeping in my truck when I wrote this story. It was then when the Lord said it would become a book, play and cartoon. After relocating to Newport News, a woman named Paulette believed enough in me to invest $5000 into my dream of having a professional career as a writer. It was then that I wrote my first musical based on the book. My goal is to direct and produce my first musical production by this holiday season. I want others to be inspired to believe in themselves and their dreams and despite your circumstances you can overcome and persever. Your contribution will be a blessing to my cause. Thank you for your time and attention and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
