THEATER AS MINISTRY
November 17, 2011 from 7:45pm to 10:00pm
2215 W. North Ave. between Bell and Leavitt (5 minute walk from the Damen Blue line stop)
UrbanTheater Company is partnering with Urban Village Church and The Night Ministry for an evening of Theatre and Ministry. Taking to the Stage and sharing our stories is powerful and life changing. After each performance of Nilo Cruz’s Beauty of the Father, we have had the opportunity to meet and speak directly with members of our audience who have been moved and touched. Not only by the performances, but by the story. Beauty is a story about family, love and reconciliation. To that end, UTC has partnered with Urban Village Church, a Chicago Church that truly practices what it preaches by accepting every single person for who they are and where they are at on this life journey. Urban Village will collect items for Chicago’s Night Ministry; a city organization that assists Chicago’s Homeless and LGBT Youth. A Donation to the Night Ministry gets you a specially priced $10 ticket! Items will be collected at the theatre. Items to bring: travel size toothpaste, shaving items, deodorant, shampoo, Winter Coats, blankets, socks, hats and gloves! Join Pastors Trey Hall and Christian Coon for an intimate Post Show Talk Back discussing themes expressed in the play. Support our efforts to not only bringing amazing Midwest Premieres to the stage, but as we work to partnering with organizations working to heal the world.
