A musical about health and wellness.
What happens when four actors and a stage manager load a van full of sets, props and costumes and travel from New Brunswick, NJ to Trenton, NJ? The answer: Austin the Unstoppable! Produced by George Street Playhouse, Austin the Unstoppable is a musical comedy about health and wellness. Over the past three years, in partnership with Ready, Set, Healthy and sponsored by Novo Nordisk, we have had the pleasure of touring the performance to schools and faith-based organizations. In total, we have performed 23 shows for nearly 3,500 people.
Children and adults alike enjoy Austin the Unstoppable for it’s fun, upbeat message about the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle, the power of love and friendship, and working hard to achieve your goals. Austin the Unstoppable delivers this message through relatable characters, upbeat music, and humor.
After the show, we hold post play discussions with the audience to give them tips on how to live a healthy and more active lifestyle and answer any questions they may have about the show or the information presented. Students and caregivers alike say that the message of Austin the Unstoppable has inspired them to make healthy lifestyle changes, taught them about the importance of eating healthy, and learning that while change isn’t always easy, it is necessary to live a healthy lifestyle.
We have had a wonderful journey bringing Austin the Unstoppable to Trenton’s youth and families. A big thank you to Ready, Set, Healthy and Novo Nordisk for making this initiative possible for us!
