ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A special two-man musical "The Missing Peace" is making its debut in Albuquerque – written, directed and performed by a local teen named Colin Miller. 


"He's an outstanding writer, he has a good understanding of not only the writing process, but character development," said Darryl Bryant, a teacher at Sandia Prep. 

Miller has made it his mission to help others in the community to find their missing "peace." 

"When I am on stage singing... I feel free. That is the missing piece for me," Miller said. 

The musical started as a school project at Sandia Prep, with just two characters. Miller plays a boy with autism, who recently lost his brother to suicide. 

Bryant, Miller's sixth grade teacher, plays Apollo – a struggling musician on the brink of suicide.

"The Missing Peace" will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturday at Sandia Prep 

All proceeds go to the New Mexico Autism Society.
