When my friend Angela contacted me with this great date night idea that includes volunteering and a free show, I was excited to share it with all of you! We haven’t been to Hopebox Theatre yet, but after hearing Angela’s experience, I think we’ll be volunteering there soon. Enjoy the date night idea below, written by Angela, then follow her @project7.co on Instagram.
Where: Hopebox Theatre
As a couple, we love watching the performing arts for date night! We also love to volunteer. That’s when we came up with the idea to put them together!
We tried, and loved, one such opportunity with the Hopebox Theatre! The @hopebox_theatre “is built on the power of the performing arts to help people heal”. They “strive to bring hope and light into the lives of those who are battling dark times, specifically cancer”. The owner went through her own journey of cancer and found that music and musical productions gave her hope which ignited the idea to open a theatre for this very cause! For every production, they feature an individual with cancer and give the proceeds to them for their treatment!
You can also volunteer as an usher with artsaltlake.org at Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Eccles Theater, and the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center! When you do, as with the Hopebox Theatre, you get a free ticket!
Grab yourself a date for the weekend, do some good, and enjoy the show!
