MLK community celebration to be held
Lisa Wagner-Carollo, founder of Still Point Theatre in Chicago, will lead a theater workshop for youth and adults from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 at the Mielke Theater.
Still Point Theatre was established in 1993 and is a made up of a community of Chicago artists who use theater to educate, inspire and challenge communities to action.
They celebrate common spirituality and raise consciousness on issues of peace and justice through performances, workshops, retreats and community events.
At 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16, Wagner-Carollo will perform "Haunted by God: The Life of Dorothy Day" at First Presbyterian Church.
It will be part of the evening's Martin Luther King celebration.
The play is a theatrical work about the life of Day, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. She spent 47 years caring for the poor and leading the Catholic Church to a more active concern for the needy in U.S. society.
The play has been recognized as an amazing one-woman portrait of this activist, from her days as a 17 year old from Greenwich Village through her mid-life as a social activist and culminating in her later years as a wise elder leader.
The 5:30 p.m. celebration will be followed by a light dinner at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are not required for the dinner. A free will offering may be given for the meal.
The Jan. 15 workshop and Jan. 16 performance are both community-wide events. Donations for the workshop will be appreciated.
To sign up for the workshop or to receive additional information, call First Presbyterian Church at 715-526-3329 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
