8/25/08


MCCC's Kelsey Theatre will host memorable events Sept. 12 and 13 to benefit individuals with disabilities. "Through Our Eyes" spotlights the unique perspectives of special needs individuals on Friday, Sept. 12. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for rear seating and $50 for front seating. On Saturday, Sept. 13, the Comedy-Magic of Mark Robinson comes to Kelsey at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets for the matinee are $20 -- kids welcome! Tickets for the evening performance are $25 for the front section and $20 for the rear. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

A reprise of sold-out shows presented in 2006 and 2007, "Through Our Eyes" includes actors of all abilities, ranging from children to adults. According to director Alan Rosen, who wrote and composed the show's musical score, cast members will tell their stories through a series of vignettes and songs. "The audience will discover how special needs individuals see the world and come away with a sense that these actors are sharing their lives right on stage," he said. "Through Our Eyes" is presented by ClubArts OnStage, a performing arts program of Allies, Inc., in Hamilton, N.J.

One of the hottest magic acts in the country follows on Saturday, Sept. 13. "Direct from Vegas…The Comedy-Magic of Mark Robinson" features this talented juggler, comedian, and award-winning illusionist. His hilarious, unique blend of stand-up comedy and magic has garnered him rave reviews and earned him the distinction of being "the funniest magic act you've never seen!"

Teens and adults of all abilities are
featured in "Through Our Eyes."

The magic-comedy of Mark Robinson takes
center stage on Sept. 13. All proceeds will
benefit individuals with disabilities.

The evening will also include a silent auction. Anyone wishing to contribute items to the auction should call Juanita Kreger or Alan Rosen at the Mercer County Special Services School District at (609) 588-8450.
