18th Annual Shoes for Children Drive and Benefit Performances

Join us for the 18th annual Shoes for Children Drive and Benefit Performances of The Threepenny Opera by the Ira Aldridge Theatre Company of Nevada on Tuesday, December 11 and Wednesday, December 12 at 7 p.m. at the Summerlin Library, and Friday, December 14 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16 at 2 p.m. at the West Las Vegas Library.

The Threepenny Opera is an adaptation of the 18th century The Beggar’s Opera and provides savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern day morality. These performances are produced and directed by Mr. Walter Mason and co-directed by Antonio Fargas. “Sweet” Lou Collins, a co-founder of the event, will emcee.

Admission to these benefit performance events is one new pair of children’s athletic shoes sized to fit preschoolers to high school youth. Donations will also be accepted through December 23 at all District branches for those unable to attend the concert. Donated shoes will benefit neighboring schools and local charities.

Co-sponsored by the Ira Aldridge Theatre Company of Nevada.
