"High-energy musical offers laughs and tears!"
"Breast in Show masterfully blends comedy with tragedy!"
Richmond Family Magazine

The first original musical about saving the ta tas!

Starring Andrew Hamm, Brittany D. Simmons, Chloe Williams, Jeanie Rule, Lauren Leinhaas-Cook, and Russell Rowland.

Breast in Show is inspired by interviews conducted with patients, medical personnel and family members over a period of two years. At first one might think that a musical about breast cancer would be depressing or cynical and something no one would want to see. However just the opposite is true. Breast in Show accentuates the informative, but funny and serious aspects of the disease with equal vigor. Following six very different people on their journey with breast cancer, the show is an emotional and multi-dimensional production. You don’t want to miss out on this exciting new musical now in its second production! Visit for more information.
