    Assembly Performance: CFRTeen Tour of Be Real

    CFRTeen Tour of Be Real, Macy Weaver (Grades K-5)

    Eleven-year-old Macy Weaver knows relationships are complicated. When she moves to a new home, Macy sets her sights on making Brynn her new best friend. The only problem? Brynn already has a BFF and, as everyone knows, you can only have one! Full of insecurity, Macy tells everyone her life is a fantastic whirlwind of fashion and couture clothing—but eventually the lie catches up to her and everything falls apart. In this brand-new musical adventure, Macy must determine how to make things right and be true to herself. She learns that pretending to be something you aren't- isn't as important as being real!
