The VETERANS THEATER PROJECT:
We are talking with homeless veterans and the homeless community of New Mexico to come up with the stories that are the basis for the theater plays. They turn these stories into theater plays for paying audiences
We SOLD OUT the play 'Dead While Waiting for My VA Appointment!’ performed by homeless veterans and the homeless community of Camp Hope, on APRIL 30th 5:00PM-7:00PM at New Mexico State University's Center for Performing Arts. Prices: Tickets $6 Students, $12 Adults (lodge), & $25 (Front Row). We used all the 70 chairs, ordered 30 more, and still people were standing against the walls to see the performance.
Our NEXT event is to rent the Rio Grande Theater for a September performance (exact date to be announced). The Rio Grande Theatre is a 422-seat performing arts facility with a forty-foot fly loft, dressing rooms, digital projector, sound and lighting equipment, acoustical panels, refrigerated air, a refurbished lobby, and gallery spaces.
We continue to do fund fraising using CrowdSource at GoFundMe.com/mol1wc to cover costs of next play and setting up or 501 (c) 3. Thank you.
