Western Washington University’s production of “HereToo - WWU,” an original company-created play drawn largely from interviews with young activists confronting the gun violence epidemic in America, will be performed at Bellingham High School on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Free admission is offered to high school students – general admission is $10, and college students with ID are $5. Cash and cards are accepted at the door.
In recognition of ongoing gun violence, the devised theatre piece now closes with a moment of silence to honor Lynn Heimsoth and Stephanie Cresswell, two members of the Bellingham community who were shot to death in separate incidents in the last several months.
“HereToo,” which was first staged last summer as part of Western Summer Theatre and was re-staged in November at the PAC, will then travel to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Colorado. Ticket proceeds from the Bellingham High performance will help offset costs of traveling to the festival.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our students, faculty and department as a whole,” said Western Washington University professor of Theatre and Dance Rich Brown, who produced “HereToo” along with New York City theater artist Barbara Pitts McAdams.
