Shine On Benefit

September 18 from 7pm to 10pm at honey in Minneapolis.

Join us for another fantastic Uprising benefit! We’ll be raising money to fund our October production of Melanie Marnich’s These Shining Lives. We’ve got a fun-filled evening for you with performers, a silent auction featuring items from women owned businesses, performances from the cast of These Shining Lives and more. We also have a message from the playwright that will be shown at the event.

Tickets are a suggested donation of $15 and can be purchased in advance or at the door by cash, check, or credit card. We also have a ticket bundle available: for $25 get a ticket to both the benefit and These Shining Lives in October. Get your tickets here. 

Not local but still want to support? You can sponsor a piece of the set!


Go here to make a donation and put what you want to sponsor in the notes!
