Preceding the play, there will be a fundraising dinner beginning at 5:30 pm in the Orpheum Lobby Restaurant with Craig and Cindy Corrie, parents of Rachel Corrie. All proceeds above cost will go toward emergency relief in Gaza.

We hope you will join us and please bring friends and family. The play is appropriate for older middle school and high school students.

It will also be available at the play.(the script is very moving and important to read, even if you can't make the play.......
