Letters Home

A play that brings to life letters from real soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan

Well, we're already into November and it's been a while since we updated our blog! We kicked off our 2009-10 season last month with Upon Their Shoulders: The Merrimack Story, an original play about the lives of real people who lived in Merrimack Mill Village. Every single show ended up selling out completely!

Coming up next week is Letters Home, a play based off real letters from soldiers serving in the Middle East. We're excited for our first-ever corporate buy-out of a performance! The Huntsville Times, along with SAIC, S3, the U.S. Army MWR, and Avion have bought out the Friday night performance and will donate 150 seats to soldiers from Redstone Arsenal. We'll be having a special reception after the performance in honor of the soliders, where they'll be able to meet the cast of the play.

Another exciting aspect of Letters Home is that we'll have a local actor, Kevin Kingston, in town for the performance! Letters Home is produced and performed by Griffin Theatre Co., based out of Chicago. A native of Arab, Alabama, Kevin will appear with Griffin Theatre Co. here in Huntsville.

Read this article published in The Arab Tribune on Monday, Nov. 9 about Kevin!
