Meet Gina Devine. She’s hopeless… a hopeless dreamer: fame, fortune, and water fights with Michael Jackson – a chance to flee her formidable past. She wants to soar… to fly… to dance. But Gina is hopeless, as everyone knows.
HotForTheatre brings you an inspiring story of salvation and deliverance.
This is the compelling journey of Gina’s transformation: a poignant account of redemption and release. Nothing is impossible… well maybe the moonwalk, but Gina’s gotta dance.
