Camelot Theatre production to benefit assault survivors
The Wednesday performance of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Doubt" at the Camelot Theatre in Talent will help fund free services for Jackson County survivors of sexual assault.
The show begins at 8 p.m., and a silent auction will be held beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show are $18.
Show proceeds will benefit the Jackson County Sexual Assault Response Team, which offers free care, forensic evidence collection and long-term support for sexual assault survivors and their families.
Set in a Catholic school in 1964, the play depicts the battle between a strong-minded nun and the popular priest she suspects of sexual abuse. In 2008, "Doubt" was made into an Oscar-nominated film featuring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The Talent show is directed by Don Matthews and stars Livia Genise and Doug Warner.
