The Story of the Musical

Caroline Turner is a well-mannered, ordinary 12yr old girl who is having an Awful Day. She encounters a series of unpleasant events that eventually lead to detention at school and home. Angered by the circumstances surrounding her punishment, Caroline discovers a folder full of letters on her father's desk. He's a 5th grade teacher whose class has written anonymous essays that detail challenging issues in their lives. Through the issues revealed in the letters and with the help of concerned friends, Caroline gains wisdom, a better understanding of others' lives, and a greater appreciation of her own life. By the end of the musical, her Awful Day becomes an Awesome Day and the only thing that changed was her perspective.

A Message from the Co-founder


As an educator for over 30 years, I have witnessed firsthand the importance for students to express themselves either through written or spoken words. L2D is a platform that allows for this opportunity. It is a program created to inspire and encourage people to work together through challenging issues. The powerful messages and catchy meaningful songs transcend beyond just an entertaining musical.
