-louder than war (Drink the musical review)
Since becoming involved with Just Bee Productions I have experienced a feeling of belonging that I hadn't previously. I have been encouraged to be myself and that my contribution is valuable. I am far more appreciative of my own talents as well as those of fellow participants. Being creative in a safe environment with great people has been extremely beneficial to my own health and wellbeing as well as super fun.
