For all events, we are focusing on SAFETY. We have improved air filtration inside the Kelly Center for the safety of Customers, Staff and Performers. We have upgraded to Hospital Grade HEPA air filtration, Negative Air Ion filters and Apple Catechin filters with antiviral and antibacterial properties. These upgrades trap and deactivate microscopic bacteria and viruses, and can diminish or prevent the spread of diseases. Our HVAC draws in fresh air from outside, completely turning the inside air over every 5 minutes. We open the windows when appropriate to improve fresh air flow.
One woman show titled, HER STRENGTH, OUR STORY: the story of Trudy's grandmothers journey from Europe to America and how she and her family overcame incredible obstacles.
This show is a compelling story about an immigrant family’s journey and their ability to survive during a time of cruel inhumanity to fellow human beings. Written and performed by Trudy Graboyes, HER STRENGTH, OUR STORY is centrally focused on Trudy’s grandmother Ida and features three original songs against the backdrop of a map illustrating Ida's journey and restored pictures of her family.
