  • ANGEL, A Musical - Benefit for the Center of Hope

    Feb 21, 2014

    The Barbara Olson Center of Hope is very excited to be a part of a unique event this summer. Mike Webb, the writer & director at Rock Valley College's Starlight and Studio theaters has written Angel - a Musical, a play about how meeting people with disabilities can profoundly affect others. This play has been Mike's labor of love to his daughter who has Rett's Syndrome, a developmental disability that usually affects only girls.

    The world premiere of this play with book & lyrics by Michael Webb & Michael Mastroianni with music by Jim Chabucos is on August 8th and will be a benefit for the Barbara Olson Center of Hope. Wheelchairs and actors alike will be airborne on August 8th on the Starlight Theater stage. Being familiar with the Center, you can imagine how this is an excellent opportunity for the community to come together and support the work of individuals and agencies who work with these most vulnerable individuals.
