Waking Kya

Dec 4, 2013 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Please join us for a memorable evening, Wednesday, Dec. 4th at 6:30 pm. We are hosting a unique and heart wrenching play with dancers in support of "16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence". This is a must see play. "Waking Kya" is based on real occurrences that took place in Sierra Leone to women and girls during the Blood Diamond era. You will experience life during war in a refugee camp through the narrative of one young woman played by actress, Linda Obasi who was born in Nigeria and studied acting at The Theatre School at De Paul University, New York.  As an act of solidarity, we have chosen this play in support of stopping violence against women and children.
We are honored to have the playwright of Siobhan Fitzpatrick Austin, and other members of the cast; director, Pam Warwick, choreographer Stacey Miller and her dancers Laura Guttridge and Kerry Russell, who all reside in Vero Beach.
Tickets are $25 for the play ($15) for students. For an additional $25 you could participate in the post play, candle- lite gathering with wine and hor d'eouvers and join in the discussions with the playwright and cast. Those who purchase tickets for both events will receive preferential seating. A business size advertisement on the program is $10. (Only 12 more are available) Cut off date  for the camera ready ad is Nov.15th. Please contact either Ladeshia Goodman 574-226-9680 Robin Dapp :772-770-4811 or Lalita Janke  772-633-0904 to reserve space for your ad or to hold your tickets at the "Will Call" box. If you cannot attend you may wish to donate your tickets to  transitioning women, who would otherwise not experience such an event. 
The editor on radio 1370 A.M. or 107.9 will be interviewing the writer Saturday night from 6:30pm-7pm
We look forward to seeing you on Dec. 4th.
