The AHA Players, Apopka Community Theatre will complete its first season with the very special presentation of The Guys by Anne Nelson.
The Guys is about the aftereffects of the collapse of the World Trade Center. In the play, Joan, an editor, helps Nick, an FDNY captain, prepare the eulogies for an unprecedented number of firefighters who died under his command that day.
Performances are Fridays & Saturdays, June 17, 18, 24 & 25 at 8 PM and Sunday, June 26 at 2 PM. Performances will be held at the Apopka Community Center, 519 S. Central Ave. Tickets are $15. Use this link to purchased tickets in advance.
The AHA Players will donate 50% of the profits from ticket sales to help fund Christian Lamphere’s Eagle Scout project, the “Apopka 9/11 Memorial.” The centerpiece of the “Apopka 9/11 Memorial” is a structural section from one of the WTC towers that was secured by Commissioner Diane & Ed Velasquez. The WTC structure accompanied by an Apopka Fire Department Honor Guard will be on display in the reception area of the Apopka Community Center at every performance of The Guys.
Aunt Gingibread’s Bakery will sell their baked goods in the reception area prior to and after each performance. All profits from their sales will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial project.
Representatives from Boy Scout Troop 211 will have a booth in the reception area at every performance so that they can provide patrons with additional information about this project.
Please mark your calendars to come experience this powerful, emotional production directed by Patrick Ward and starring Liz Curtis & Mark Hlavin.
