This is a “Theatre for A Cause” event; proceeds will benefit the Veterans Village of San Diego.
DATES: March 29, 30, 31 at 7:00 PM
Tickets are $8 for students, $15 for adults.
Tickets are available at www.SeatYourself.Biz/SanDieguito.
A Piece of My Heart is based on the true story of five women nurses and one entertainer in the Vietnam War. Their worlds are transformed when they realize the destruction and devastation the American service men face on a daily basis. These women (Kristin Perkins, Madeleine Karydes, Emi Karydes, Elisa Figueroa, Sarah Graciano, and Brigitte Williamson) come from all different walks of life. Each has their own story and reason for joining the war effort. There is one man (Dakota Speas) who portrays all of the male roles. The story takes place in several different locations over the course of 20 years.
Thoroughly moving, A Piece of my Heart makes for a powerful Theater for a Cause production, an annual tradition at San Dieguito Academy in which all proceeds go to a related charity. All donations and proceeds earned from A Piece of my Heart will go to The Veterans Village of San Diego.
