October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. HELP of Door County is sponsoring a Walk in Her Shoes at 6pm on October 5th on 3rd Avenue between Kentucky and Michigan. A Walk in Her Shoes celebrates the valuable contribution men are making to STOP Domestic Violence. We are celebrating peace and respect for all. Local male celebrities will “Take a Walk” in women’s shoes!
TAP will have live music in their lobby featuring local singer/songwriter Kory Murphy. Kory will play guitar and sing in the lobby starting about 6:45pm. Murphy infuses his gentle yet full and powerful vocal gift with lots of heartfelt, sincere emotion and then adds a rich and mellow acoustic guitar sound to produce a refreshing and spirited style of indie folk music that gets your attention immediately. That evening’s show is “Almost, Maine”. A romantic comedy under the northern lights, starring local professional actors Chad Luberger, Ryan Patrick Shaw, Amy Ensign, and Anne St. Henry. The show starts at 7:30 pm in the brand new 84-seat Studio Theater. Tickets are $20 General, $15 Senior/Military, and $10 Student. For this special evening, Third Avenue Playhouse will donate 50% of the ticket revenue to United Way of Door County.
