“The CASA Project: Stand Up For A Child”, a dramatic reading written by Sandy Asher, describes how Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is effective in the child welfare system. Produced by Creative Works of Lancaster, and directed by Lydia Brubaker, the event is free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated. No reservation is required.
Asher compiled interviews Drury University college students conducted with CASA volunteers, lawyers, case workers, foster parents, and others. Asher also completed the volunteer training program to give an authentic representation. While the script follows the college students through their learning process, the heart of the piece undoubtedly comes through the voices of the abused children, represented by poems written by Casey Adams Smith, a survivor of abuse who spent time in foster care herself. The stories are often heart-wrenching and sometimes funny, but most importantly, they are eye-opening.
