trueSUFFRAGE From trueTHEATRE Going Online July 23rd


We sincerely hope all of you are safe and healthy and your friends and loved ones are, as well. Our Board Members and volunteers at True Theatre are healthy and getting by and looking forward to sharing some more stories with you!

Status of our next main-stage show:

While we seem to be on the precipice of some events being held “in-person” again (with social-distancing and other precautions in place), there has also been a lot of news about cases of COVID-19 spiking (particularly in Hamilton County). It is for your (and our and our storytellers) comfort and safety that we have opted  to hold our next show, trueSUFFRAGE (Thursday, July 23rd, 7:30PM), as scheduled, but entirely online.

trueSUFFRAGE celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution — which states that the “right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” — by being entirely dedicated to stories of female empowerment. Be prepared to be moved and inspired!

As with our last show, trueFAKES, which you can still watch at https://youtu.be/NOMi1cZeWL0, the show will broadcast live via Zoom (webinar format) and Facebook Live the show will be FREE.

The first 100 to register for the Zoom event will be able to take part in a poll which will affect our next season (so you definitely want to be in the Zoom audience, if you can!)
The show will be view-able after the fact, as well. In fact, because you are on our mailing list or are a current ticket-holder for trueSUFFRAGE, you are the first to be able to register for the Zoom event!

Register now by visiting: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_D-aWRKy_RzqkvKRQwRiNCw

Those of you who have already purchased tickets to trueSUFFRAGE (including subscription holders) will have the option to get a refund. We did not offer ticket-holders from our last show the option to donate the cost of their ticket to True Theatre, but some of you generously did that, anyway, so we have pre-arranged to make that possible this time, as well. NOTE: if you do nothing by close-of-business on Thursday, July 16 (one week before the show), a refund of your ticket(s) will be submitted. To expedite your refund or to donate the cost of your tickets, please contact the Memorial Hall box office during their normal business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 1-6pm at 513.977.8838).

Another alternative, if you are interested in donating your ticket-cost back to True Theatre, email dave@truetheatre.org and say so. We’ll coordinate the rest with the box office.

And for those of you who won, earned, or were otherwise gifted a ticket to trueSUFFRAGE, know that we will honor those tickets at a future show and will touch base with you about using those tickets as we near Season 11.

And what about Season 11?
As is our custom, we hope to announce details about our next season at our last show of this season, so there’s another reason to join us as we live-stream trueSUFFRAGE on July 23rd!

Stay true!

Thank you for your continued support of Community-building through the sharing of true, personal stories and True Theatre.

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 trueSUFFRAGE on July 23rd!

Stay healthy, stay connected, and stay true.

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

trueSH*T on Jan. 23

Memorial Hall [Over-the-Rhine]

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.

trueHEROIN On Oct. 25

Memorial Hall [Over-the-Rhine]

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.
