These are just some of the comments from theatre-goers that were fortunate enough to get a ticket to the performances of the production of Pamela R. Smith’s WORTH THE WAIT. Premiering at the James Brown Family Performing Arts Center (JBFPAC), at 70 S. Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie, NY, the show’s message of HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancy prevention and Abstinence took viewers by surprise, and after TWO SOLD OUT PERFORMANCES, had people begging for more.
Worth The Wait emphasizes the dangers of irresponsible sexual encounters, unplanned pregnancies and the risks of contracting STD’s. Written by author Pamela R. Smith, WTW is set in the early 2000’s, but tells a story that’s just as relevant today as it was years ago. ” It is a vital piece, a play that pulls no punches about teen sexuality in society today. It cries out with passion of the dangers that are associated with irresponsible sexual encounters; for one, unplanned pregnancies, the most deadly being the HIV–AIDS virus.
