trueFAKES Moves to Free Live-Streaming on May 7 at trueTHEATRE

TRUE_logoDue to the current forecast of the length of the stay-at-home order, Memorial Hall has had to cancel all shows scheduled at their venue through the month of May, including “trueFAKES” (scheduled for May 7).

We do intend to be bringing you some stories that night, however! Keep reading for more on that, below.

Meanwhile, for those of you who already purchased tickets to “trueFAKES,” you have the option to move your ticket to our July 23rd show (“trueSUFFRAGE”) or accept a refund (prorated for subscribers, based on the subscription rate). Please choose whatever option is comfortable for you. If you do nothing by close-of-business on Thursday, April 23rd, a refund for your ticket(s) will be submitted. To move your ticket(s) or initiate your refund right away, please contact the Memorial Hall box office during their normal business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 1 – 6PM at 513-977-8838). [NOTE: For those of you who won, earned, or were otherwise gifted a ticket to “trueFAKES,” know that your tickets are being automatically moved to the July 23rd show.]

Now for some good news: we recognize the need, more than ever, for connection during these trying times, so we are currently working on bringing you “trueFAKES” via live-streaming — for FREE! We will be keeping to the same schedule (Thursday, May 7th, at 7:30 PM) . We will be writing you again, as the evening gets closer, to give you details about joining us via this new format.

Your feedback as to whether this is something you’d like to see more of will be invaluable to us as we continue to prepare for downstream events that may be hosted online, even after the stay-at-home order is lifted, so we hope you will join us online on May 7th to experience how this works for yourself!

Again, keep an eye out for our next message about this in the coming weeks. If a friend has forwarded this to you, consider signing up for our mailing list (by visiting our website) and/or following us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to stay “in the loop.”

Even over the Internet, we believe that live-streaming of stories can break down walls and build bridges between people and that is why we cannot wait to bring you “trueFAKES” on May 7th!

Stay healthy, stay connected, and stay true.

Dave & your friends at True Theatre

Some take it (and some can’t). Some give it (and some couldn’t). Some have shoveled it, are full of it, or have been emptied of it (intentionally or quite by “accident”). One thing is for sure… you do not want to step in it! Yes, we’re talking about “sh*t” and so will our storytellers in January! ..and that’s no bull!

Now in their 10th season, True Theatre continues to produce quarterly one-night-only events featuring five people, from all walks of life, sharing true, personal stories, based on the theme of the evening.

The topic of heroin and how it is impacting our country and our city is in the news all too often. We thought it was time to share some stories from people on the front lines of the epidemic here at home.

Hear stories from a small-town police chief trying to make a big difference; a mom who got the news no parent should ever receive; a man who is trying to reduce the stigma associated with addiction through song; a woman trying to address the problem by talking to kids; and a woman in recovery who is helping pave the way for others on their journeys.

True Theatre finishes their 8th season of evenings of true, personal storytelling using the theme “BLUE and hear how one woman dealt with one piece of bad news from her doctor after another. Hear from a man whose generosity got the better of him and a another woman who experienced the worst case of “middle child syndrome” you can imagine. Hear from one man combated the stresses of life in the most unusual way and a woman who fell in love with a Marine. Try and guess how each one of these stories fits the theme “blue”, then come down and find out if you guessed right.
