Join us at the History Theatre on February 13, 2018

Creativity and Mental Health Recovery

On Tuesday, February 13th from 6:30-7:30pm Vail Place members will perform at the History Theatre in St. Paul. Scenes, monologues, poetry, song, and dance will be among the theatrical expressions used to reveal the often devastating challenges of living with a mental illness.  Our hope is the audience will gain a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with mental illness – and the healing and recovery that is possible through knowledge and support.

Join us for this event – one that has so profoundly and positively impacted the lives of Vail Place members…and the lives of all who attend.

But wait – there’s more! 

Here’s another opportunity to support arts programming at Vail Place. Donate in honor of the selfless sacrifice of members and staff who have dedicated years to nurturing bountiful hair growth.  We’re thrilled to announce the “event after the event…”


Show Your Face for Mental Health!

Immediately after the History Theatre performance Vail Place members and staff will shave off their beards, ponytails and possibly even their entire head of hair to support arts programming at Vail Place, an important part of our recovery and our lives. Learn more about Shaving Grace here. 

RSVP to or call 952-945-4236.

This event is free and open to the public. If you’d like to donate to support our Theater Arts Program feel free to use this form:

About the Theater Arts Program
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Throughout the process, members have engaged in creative writing exercises and other theater processes that have, as one member stated, “been cathartic and helped me live beyond my comfort zone and open up to the ‘realworld’”!

History Theatre is located at 30 East 10th Street in St. Paul. For directions to the History Theatre click here.
