Please join us on SUNDAY, MARCH 11th for “Mystery in the Art Gallery”, a kids’ and family show. We are doing this show as a fundraiser for a family with a heartbreaking, and heartwarming, story.

imageThree years ago, we performed one of our kids’ shows for a family, the Abrahamssons. They wanted a special celebration for their twins’ sixth birthday. The celebration was a big one, because doctors had warned the family that one of the twins, Maya, would probably not live to six years old. She had a large cancerous brain tumor on the brain, in a place from which it cannot be removed. Her father, Jim, came forward that day, and said he is an actor and improvisation artist. He has since become one of the major players at Adams Mystery Playhouse, and part of our “family” here.

The two girls, Maya and Leah, are now nine years old! It’s been an up-hill battle, including another scare last summer with the other twin, Leah. Doctors found a large tumor on Leah’s spine. It was removed and, thankfully, found to be benign.

Just two weeks ago, Maya and Leah’s mom went in to the doctor’s for some “female problems”. They ended up finding more than they thought they would. Sheila had breast cancer. They didn’t waste any time, due to the severity of it, and Sheila had a double mastectomy. The cancer has spread and she will undergo chemotherapy and radiation. The family now faces yet an additional challenge. And, the financial expenses are very high.

Through it all, the family has been strong, positive and fighting all the way – for years.

We are looking to you for help. Jim’s home theatre, Adams Mystery Playhouse, will put on one of their famous mysteries, but this time written by Leah and Maya (with a little bit of Dad’s help). This intriguing story, is set in an art gallery, when suddenly, a million dollar painting gets stolen! It is up to you to solve the crime. And, you will have an awesome lasagne lunch: 3-cheese lasagne w/meat sauce on the side; salad; rolls and butter; brownies; lemonade & coffee.

ALL PROCEEDS will go towards the Abrahamssons and the medical costs.
