Live theater and live music, 4 p.m., Sunday, April 15
The Wonder Valley Community Center is proud to present local theater, for the first time in a really long time, with Project Sheba's
STAND FOR FREEDOM CABARET.
The show follows the closing night performance of Cabaret performer, Thelma Edwards. Set in a small southern town, this play was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination.
Starring Miri Hunter in the title role, the show is a collaborative work which features a script by Hunter and Lisa Mednick Powell and an original music score by the Hi Desert bands Hunter and the Wick'd and Arroyo Rogers.
The tile of the show, STAND FOR FREEDOM, is inspired by a line from Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
There is a $10 requested donation, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
Your donations help keep the doors of the Wonder Valley Community Center open and producing important and necessary programming.
Please come and support this exciting program, and enjoy live music by some of the best Hi-Desert music groups.
