Come and see local talent perform current and classic Broadway hits at the 3rd Annual “Broadway for #brAvery“. Featuring student director and producer, McKenna Webb, the production will be filled with different Broadway and popular Disney musical numbers with all proceeds benefiting the Avery Huffman Defeat DIPG Foundation to fund medical research needed to fight Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) the deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer. Avery Huffman died in February 2016 after fighting DIPG for 7.5 months. During her fight, she impacted many in the Auburn community where she lived, including McKenna Webb, who was a finalist for Miss Auburn’s Outstanding Teen with her platform being DIPG Awareness. Avery’s fight inspired McKenna, who attended Lakeland Hills Elementary School, where Avery was a student, and motivated her platform and while Avery fought valiantly, McKenna continues to spread awareness of DIPG and it is what has inspired her to bring her passion for theater and her drive to share Avery’s story together for an event for the Auburn community and the Avery Huffman Defeat DIPG Foundation. McKenna has performed in over 25 musicals and plays in the Greater Seattle Area as well as participated in the prestigious Summer Musical Theater Institute at Wagner College in New York. Performers of the Auburn Community who were touched by Avery and other who wants to support cancer research will perform Broadway hits to raise money for her foundation.
