During the run of Oliver!, we are hosting a food drive.
This musical is based on the classic novel Oliver Twist, by Charles Dickens. Dickens was very concerned with the plight of the poor, especially disadvantaged children. In this spirit, and the spirit of the season, we wanted to give our community the opportunity to help those in need.
When you come to the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts to see Oliver!, please bring non-perishable food. Alternatively, you can drop by with donations during box office hours between opening on December 11 and closing on December 20. At each performance of Oliver!, everyone who donates to the food drive will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to a future City Circle show.
After we close, all food donations will be delivered to Coralville’s Ecumenical Food Pantry.
Their list of most-needed items includes:
- Fresh or Canned Fruits & Veggies
- Peanut Butter
- Hearty Soups & Stews
- Beans (canned & dried)
- Canned Meats
- Toilet Paper
For more information about the Food Pantry, check out their website.
We look forward to seeing you at a performance of Oliver! The show runs Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30, and Sundays at 2:00 through December 20. Tickets are available online or at the box office (319) 248-9370.
