Here these two organizations share many values in the town they live in, in the town where they do business. They both promote a sustainable model of non-consumerism. They both insist on supporting locally owned & operated enterprise. And they communicate their respective missions through compassion. I’ve posted about Available Light Theatre before, in February. Simply Living, as the mission states, “…supports individuals, families and organizations in creating a more compassionate and sustainable world.”
During the first week this June, from Thursday the 2cd through Sunday the 5th, Simply Living and Available Light Theatre shall come together at THE FOOD PLAY with a two-fold goal, to raise funds for Simply Living as well as to raise awareness of a rich soup pot of actors, writers, directors and poets who present their art “healthy/organic/locally grown.”
For Simply Living members, here’s how you can see great theatre, continue to support localism, and raise much-needed funds:
LOCAL THEATRE FUNDRAISER FOR SIMPLY LIVING
Available Light Theatre presents THE FOOD PLAY live at
the North Market, and Simply Living members can see this locavorist production
and raise green stuff for their own mission at the same time.
Here’s a brief description from Founder/Artistic Director Matt Slaybaugh (also a Simply Living member)
of what we can look forward to:
A healthy, organic, locally grown evening of spectacular performances in Available Light’s trademark style – described by American Theatre magazine as “songs and scenes, quips and quotations… a brilliantly eclectic anthology.”
We’ll mix in some great food (produced and provided by Local Matters with dessert from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams) and charge headlong into the most delicious questions of our time – “What is good food?” and “What does it mean to eat right?”
