Mental Health Recovery on Stage at History Theatre, February 19

Join us on February 19 at 6:30pm for our annual Vail Place Theater Arts Program presentation at History Theatre! Stories of Humor, Hope and Healing puts mental health recovery in the spotlight on stage. You’ll discover Vail Place member stories through scenes, monologues, poetry, song and movement.

Tickets to the performance are FREE. Donations are accepted. You’re also invited to a dessert reception following the show! Contact Kristin to RSVP or for more info at kkaspar@vailplace.org or 952-945-4234.

Vail Place member and performer Ranee invites you into her life… “It’s a great feeling to be on stage – a rush! It makes your self-worth and esteem better than ever. It’s refreshing to be able to create something and make it happen on the History Theater stage; to watch the audience and see how it affects them. This opens another door – it educates. There’s education around mental health, but we still have a long way to go. We’re people with degrees, jobs – we function like anybody else. We are human. For someone who has mental health issues like myself, Vail Place is a vehicle to help yourself – it’s the biggest ship of hope for people who have mental health and we want people to know that.”

The Theater Arts Program 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.
