When a trio of African-American sisters, their mom and their white sister-in-law arrive for the funeral of the family matriarch, they begin to unearth mementos that lead them to look back at their own relationships as well as the history of black women, as told through the hit songs of each era. Dorothy Marcic's musical takes you through the struggles of the '30s and the girl group sounds of the '60s, right up to the power decade of the '90s with songs ranging from Billie Holiday to Beyonce, including ""Oh, Happy Day," "Mama Said," "I Will Survive" and "A Woman's Worth."

It was 10 years ago when the world watched as two young outcasts walked into their high school one afternoon and attempted to massacre hundreds of young people. Although failing in their original mission to kill 250 students, the two teens left twelve students and a teacher fatally wounded, and many others scarred for life.
The Columbine Project examines exactly what went through the minds of several students including the killers. This drama also examines racism and homophobia within this high school, in particular, which was a major hidden subject behind those walls.
Writer/director Paul Storiale has spent six months researching and writing, moving beyond what has been public knowledge to include information gathered from interviews he has conducted with students who watched as the two boys plotted and attacked. Filled with monologues straight from diaries, and never-before-known information, this staged true story will provide insight to who these children were, and perhaps whose hands may share in the blood.
