The Art of Me Summer '14 FRONT copy


Save the date for August 14! Valley Friendship Club and Upstream Arts are thrilled to present an original and unique theatrical experience exploring the many wonderful and complicated roles we play in our lives. Performers, who have been working together twice a week since early July, will share their stories with you through song, dance, movement, visual art, and poetry.

To whet your appetite, check out some of the media coverage from last year’s residency in The Pioneer Press and Stillwater Gazette.

The Art of Me: The Roles We Play will be presented on Thursday, August 14, at 6:30pm. This year’s performance is FREE OF CHARGE, open to the public, and will take place at Oak-Land Jr. High School, 820 Manning Avenue, Lake Elmo, MN. No reservations necessary. Plan to stick around after the show for a reception with cake! We look forward to seeing you there.
