In keeping with its mission to create "professional quality theatre using a broad spectrum of artists who represent the community in all of its diversity," New Route Theatre
focuses its energy and its productions on stories often overlooked by other theaters in the area
This week, New Route Theatre
will present something they're calling Her*Story
, or "A Showcase of Original Personal Stories by Women from the Bloomington Normal Community." There's a lot of information packed in there, but it's important. Yes, these are her
They are new, they come from the heart, they represent what individual women find important, and they come from women in this
community, like contributors Lauren Berry, Kat Gregory, Elaine Hill, Jajwanica Johnson, Genevieve Pilon and Diane Walker and co-creators Heather Carnahan and Rachel Lewis. Carnahan, a graduate of Illinois State University's Masters program in theatre, also serves as director.
What will you see? Her*Story
is composed of "original stories reflecting on moments that impacted
the contributors’ lives. This performance piece provides insights into
what it means to be a woman facing the challenges of today’s society.
Stories elicit both laughter and tears, frustration and anger, as these
remarkable women bravely share their stories of both joy and heartbreak."
Performance are scheduled for Friday and Saturday March 24 & 25 at 7:30 pm and Sunday the 26th at 2:30 pm at the First Christian Church located at 401 West Jefferson Street in Bloomington. And admission is also a bargain -- you can either donate any feminine care product you choose or $5.00 at the door.
