City Park Players Presents Community Connections for Social Security

City Park Players is proud to be part of what makes Central Louisiana a great place to live. We are building partnerships with other community agencies whose mission is also to improve the quality of life of CenLa residents. With each production in our 2009 season, City Park Players and our Community Connection partners will address issues that are important to our community.  Our current production, which runs from June 4 – 14, is “Social Security” by Andrew Berman and directed by Frith Harwood.

We are pleased to announce that opening night Thursday June 4th at 7:30 pm, is Central Louisiana Professional Women’s Network Night.  Members of CL-PWN will join us as special guests in conjunction with our Community Connections initiative.  The purpose of the Professional Women’s Network is to provide a network for women representing a cross-section of professionals and businesses, who have reached a high level of achievement in a decision-making position. This network unites, supports, and promotes professional and executive women in the business, not-for-profit, and government sectors. A member organization of The International Alliance: An Association of Executive and Professional Women, they meet monthly on the 4th Thursday of each month. 

On Friday evening, June 5th we welcome representatives from Friendship House to the performance. The mission of Friendship House is to provide a safe and caring day program in a clean, home-like setting where adults find a renewed sense of self-worth through healthcare, socialization and recreation.  The only licensed adult, day program, care center in central Louisiana, Friendship House is a non-profit organization that provides supervised programs and activities for adults who require a supportive system during daytime hours, but can still live in their own home or with family or friends.  Located in downtown Alexandria at 114 Sixth Street, across from the Rapides Regional ER the hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 7 am until 5:30 pm.  The phone number is 318-473-9504 and the website iswww.friendship-house.net

Performances continue on Saturday June 5 at 7:30 pm. The Sunday, June 7th matinee at 2:30 pm is our Sunday Social. Then evening performances at 7:30 pm will resume the following Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 11 – 13. The 2:30 pm matinee on Sunday June 14th will close out the run of this show.

Even though we are recognizing the work of these organizations, everyone is invited to attend all the performances.  Reservations are urged. Tickets are available at the box office before the show.
