Where Every Family Matters

The Theater Bug’s ‘7 Ways to Sunday’ Opens July 30

Performances will be held at The Looby Theater, 2301 Rosa Parks Blvd, Nashville.

The Theater Bug presents their new production of the musical, 7 Ways to Sunday, running July 30 – August 7 at the Looby Theater, 2301 Rosa Parks Blvd, Nashville. The show — originally produced by the Theater Bug in 2016 — features a  cast of young performers, as well as local professional adult actors Jennifer Whitcomb-Oliva and Chase Miller. 

The new version of 7 Ways to Sunday is created in partnership with The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, with input from suicide loss and suicide-attempt survivors. It was created to help teens suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts understand that they are not alone and to give them the vocabulary to ask for help, as well as teaching prevention to their families and peers, giving them tools to ask hard questions and get people the help they need.

About the play

Sunday Miller is a 15-year-old girl with a secret. She has superpowers. After using one of them to see her own future, she decides to go back in time and relive the same day, using her superpowers to try and change the outcome. On the way she uncovers the secret pain of her family and friends, and does her best to reach out and connect. This show addresses depression, self-harm, and suicide, and involves the death of a young person. We strongly advise parental guidance for audiences under 13.

7 Ways to Sunday is directed by Cori Anne Laemmel with musical direction by Laura Matula and choreography by Tosha Marie Pendergrast. Set design by MA2LA and costume design by Porsche Pope.
