When Thurman White Middle School’s play was cancelled due to the pandemic, Cox Communications found a way to bring students together. Working with an Academy Award-winning director, the play was reimagined as an animated short that was voiced and performed by the students. The result was Drawn Closer, a heartfelt story of a school play in trouble, and a drama class determined to save it. In the film, it's the opening night of the play and everything seems to be going wrong. From technical hiccups, to wardrobe malfunctions, to a star stuck at home with a broken leg, no one knows how it will all come together.
