Evening of Theater and More at Sullivan High - June 13th

An Evening of Live Theater & More at Sullivan High School

Tuesday, June 13 / Doors open 6:15pm / Program begins 7pm

6631 N. Bosworth / Park in lot off Greenview



An Evening of Theater and More at Sullivan High promises to be a genuine "feel good RPBG appreciation night" - and one that might cause you to feel immensely proud to be associated with our organization.

The performance - produced and directed by Lifeline Theater - based on stories from the student actors - reflects the diversity of their lives - and 11 of the 20 actors are immigrants and refugees.

(By the way, the amazing story in Chicago Magazine about Sullivan's refugee program (Welcome to Refugee High) is now available ON LINE.)

 The evening's festivities will also allow us to see the fruits of our other contributions: the football team, which went 10-0 after we helped purchase them shoulder pads; the music program which we have assisted by restoring instruments and paying for private lessons; and, of course, the Life Skills classroom which we built, serving students in the Low Incidence program (students with autism and Down Syndrom), where the students will host a dessert reception with cookies they made.

What can  you do? If you plan on attending, please REGISTER - no charge for paid RPBG Members. We will even feed you! (Doors open at 6:15; Program at 7:00. Guests: $10 pre-register; $15 at the door.)

What else? To give students and Sullivan staff a feeling of support, let alone the thrill of performing in front of a packed  house, it would be great if we could draw 80 - 150 people to this event.

Later today we will send out a flyer - please forward it on - or, go ahead and forward this email. Consider bringing your high school age kids - as they might benefit by seeing that high school activities like drama, sports and music are not necessarily opportunities that Chicago high school kids, like those at Sullivan, can take for granted - and 'but for' the generosity of organizations like ours, they might not have them!

There will be a fundraising component to the evening - to fund a theater program next Fall, and to support the newly established non profit Friends of Sullivan, but no expectations, as this event recognizes your past generosity.

Remember - please register, so we can plan accordingly. (Sullivan is at 6631 N. Bosworth; parking lot on Greenview.)
