Project Update: Opening Night! {by Nelda}

IMG_0251We’re creating our piles in the Service Center– tablecloths, brochures, an extra table in case we can’t find one– in preparation for tonight.  The biggest news of the week is that our 1,000 copies of the printed collection of stories arrived!  There’s nothing quite like the feeling of seeing the final product of a long and stressful project for the first time.  We’re so excited to get these collections in the hands of community members.

Dr. Matt Omasta, the USU Department of Theatre Arts faculty who was tasked with translating some of our stories to the stage, will introduce the work that he and his students did to prepare for this performance.  Audience members who attend our matinee at the Whittier Community Center will also have the chance to see a piece crafted by the Valley Dance Ensemble.  Depression screenings will be available, administered by staff of Intermountain Health Care (at the matinee only).

In the event that you’re reading this and you haven’t yet reserved your free tickets to our performances, you’ll want to do that soon!  Plan to print out your tickets or show them on your phone when you come.  We expect a crowd, and we want to make sure that those with reservations get a seat.

See you soon!
