lives. It takes the soul of the addict
and breaks the heart of everyone who loves them. And the Top Hats 2019 Program
is about just that. How being addicted destroys not only yourself, but those
around that love you. The music, Theory
of a Deadman's cover of "Wicked Game" reflects the addict's thoughts on the
struggle of trying to fight the addiction, but not being able to stay away no
matter what the cost, while the voiceover reflects the emotional journey of a
mother watching her loved one battle this addiction.
Although this is such a sensitive matter, it is reality. In Western PA Alone, drug overdose has reached epidemic levels and many of us have watched people around us suffer.
This year's program goes beyond just a performance for the 2019 staff and cast. Together, united, they want to send a message to everyone that there is help available through Shatterproof, an organization whose mission is to end the devastation that addition causes families and who is dedicated in creating a Shatterproof community that is Stronger Than Addiction.
