To participate, all theatregoers have to do is bring non-perishable food items for donation. All food collected from each performance will go to City Harvest for use in its distribution efforts.

On March 3, 10 and 17, the show will perform at 8:30 p.m. The performance will be held at 3 p.m. on March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Question and answer sessions with the cast will take place immediately following the March 11 and 18 shows.
