Event Details

Heartland Theatre Company presents Out of the Box:
Featuring Diverse Stories in many styles of how we Think. Feel. Live.
This unique event amplifies the voices of six BIPOC members of our community as they share stories about their identity, focusing on personal experiences surrounding how they think, feel, and live.
The diverse group of six featured speakers are: Connie Blick, Len Childers, Joshua Ghantous, Leigh Giles-Brown, Shahrzad Hamzeh and Rosie Hauck, who will each share intimate stories about a lived experience through their personal lens. The project is under the direction of Len Childers to shape their stories into many different styles and elevate them into a mode of expression that most strongly supports their experience, whether that be spoken word, poetry, dance, a monologue, or a narrative.
Out of the Box will take place on the lawn outside of Heartland at 5 pm on Friday, June 25 and Saturday June 26. In case of rain on these dates, a rain date is scheduled for Sunday, June 27 at 5:00 pm. Heartland Theatre is located at 1110 Douglas St. in Normal, and the grassy area is courtesy of the Town of Normal.
Free: The event is free to the public, though donations at the event are greatly appreciated.
