ATLANTA, March 2013 – Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) partners with Synchronicity Theatre and its production of “Petite Rouge” showing at Horizon Theatre
March 29-April 21. The purpose of the partnership is to raise awareness about ARMHC throughout the Atlanta community while allowing ARMHC families an exclusive behind the scenes look at the production.
“Petite Rouge” tells the story of a Cajun Red Riding Hood with a big, bad gator in the wolf role, and a wild chase through Mardi Gras. This adventure will inspire and spark the imagination of children by bringing this popular children’s book to the stage as part of Synchronicity Theatre’s Family Series. ARMHC families will have the opportunity to preview “Petite Rouge” at a special performance at the Gatewood Ronald McDonald House. Additionally, Synchronicity Theatre will be admitting ARMHC families to view the production and meet the cast backstage during opening weekend.
“Having the opportunity to offer a moment of solace to families who are enduring unspeakable times is incredibly gratifying. We are looking forward to our partnership with Synchronicity Theatre and the joy it will bring to the families staying at Atlanta’s two Ronald McDonald Houses,” says Carrie Bowden, ARMHC Marketing and Communications Director.
“Petite Rouge” by Joan Cushing is a co-production between Synchronicity Theatre and Aurora Theatre. The production is directed by Justin Anderson with musical direction by Renee Clark and choreography by Lori Werner. Please visit www.synchrotheatre.com to learn more.
About Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities:
ARMHC is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to serving the needs of children by providing temporary housing and support services to families of critically ill and injured children being treated at local hospitals. The two Atlanta Houses have provided a home away from home to more than 42,000 families since the first Atlanta House opened in 1979.
At the Ronald McDonald House families can enjoy many of the comforts of home, receive nutritious meals prepared and served by volunteers and obtain emotional support through contact with other families experiencing similar situations. No family is turned away if they cannot afford the small $20 requested contribution and many of these families stay at the Ronald McDonald House for weeks, and sometimes months, while their children receive medical treatment.
