Giving Back

FullSizeRender

Did you know that there are an estimated 2,135 homeless children here in Brevard County?

We are saddened by this statistic and as our own community is so wonderful in helping us grow as a theatre department we want to give back to our community and help aid in hopefully diminishing this statistic. Every year our spring musical picks a community based charity that we can help by donating a percentage of ticket sales to, and this year the cast of How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying is proud to support the Brevard Rescue Mission!

FullSizeRender  The Brevard Rescue Mission works to permanently break the cycle of homelessness in families by providing women with children housing, access to health care, transportation, education, nutrition, job training and life skills. The 12-24 month program is designed to lovingly transform families from dependency to self-sufficiency through daily accountability, personal responsibility and goal advancement.

Not only will we be donating a percentage of our tickets, but we will also be running a special fundraiser throughout the show weekend, to hopefully raise even more money for this very deserving charity. With their approach of providing “hands on help, versus handouts” we are excited to help them reach their goals through programs and courses that help enable life-defining opportunities for women, mothers and children. This includes everything from GED and etiquette tutoring to basic money management and educational training. We felt that what they do to help our community is the perfect fit for our show, although How to Succeed is a satire on working hard, we wanted to turn the tables and give to those who were teaching others to respectfully work hard, how to thrive in their jobs, creating healthy and happy families and prospering in their daily lives.

Thank you to all who have supported the MIHS Theatre Arts Department, we have a wonderful community and if we can give even a little back, we will! Please join us April 15-April 17 for an amazing show and the opportunity to help those in our own community!

Fox on The Fairway

 

November 20th and 21st  at 7:00 PM and November 22nd at 2:00 PM

A tribute from Ken Ludwig  to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s,

Come see this hilarious farce about golf!  Nov. 20th-Nov. 22nd

Come see this hilarious farce about golf!
Nov. 20th-Nov. 22nd

The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug

out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club.

Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic

shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’

classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s

eternal love  affair with… golf.

Rated PG-13

Produced with special permission by Samuel French
