Help Warm the Hearts of Others This Holiday Season

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Are you planning to attend Mother Hicks this weekend?  We’ve partnered with Lowell Elementary School’s Adopt-a-Family Drive to help provide warm clothing to families right here in the Cedar Valley. Mother Hicks, a play set in Southern Illinois during the Great Depression, is a beautifully told story, unique in its themes of communication, symbolism, and community.  The themes of poverty and struggle to support one’s family are presented in the play, and in this spirit, we’re reaching out to families this Holiday Season.

If you would like to help us help families in need, please bring your new or gently used winter-wear for children and adults – hats, gloves, scarves, coats, etc. – to Strayer-Wood Theatre when you come to Mother Hicks or any time until December 15th at 3:00 p.m.  Donations can be placed near the Christmas Tree in the South Lobby.

Tickets are still available for performances December 2-4 @ 7:30p & December 4 & 5 @ 2p.  Sign language interpretation is scheduled for the 7:30p performance on Saturday, December 4.  Please call the Box Office at 319-273-6381 or visit us online at www.vpaf.uni.edu/unitix/ to reserve your seats.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Holiday Season!

-The Staff at Strayer-Wood Theatre
