New Face Productions and the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College are proud to announce a one-night only performance of PostSecret:The Show on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 7:30pm. This event is a benefit for the Durango Arts Center to support adult programming such as exhibits, theatre and education and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Southwest Colorado to help promote Healthy Youth Development.
The program features an immersive, poignant journey through the humor and humanity of the personal stories we keep to ourselves, and on rare occasions, share with others. Projected images, videos, three actors and a guitarist, guide the audience through crowd-sourced narratives revealing the true stories behind their secrets.
PostSecret began as a community art project in Washington, DC in 2005 and has been featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and The Smithsonian Institute in the Capitol. The project has produced six bestselling books and inspired over a million postcard submissions raising over one million dollars for suicide prevention and, in the process, earned a mental health advocacy life-time achievement award for Frank Warren, its creator.
Warren has since collaborated with an award-winning team of theatre professionals to bring PostSecret to the stage. The Show is a breakthrough in audience sourced storytelling that reaches beyond the confines of the stage, reminding audiences secrets can be both walls and bridges.
Regina Hogan, Chairwoman of New Face Productions further explained the concept for the production, “PostSecret is a celebration of the written word. It seems to be an ideal venue for enabling expression and addressing concerns of today’s youth. NewFace decided to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters to address Healthy Youth Development through this event to generate awareness and raise funding for their curriculum of workshops.”
The Healthy Youth Development program will include: transitioning in the elementary to middle to high school levels, grief and loss support, recognition and prevention of bullying, as well as art therapy workshops.
