Our ‘thank you’ to military personnel and veterans

Our military personnel give so much of themselves. Wheaton Drama wants to give something back.

As part of our community outreach program, our theater troupe, founded in 1931, proudly offers free tickets for “A Piece of My Heart” to military veterans, current military members and local high school classes studying the Vietnam War era.

“A Piece of My Heart” is a true story of six women—three nurses, a Red Cross volunteer, a USO entertainer and an Army intelligence officer—who share their stories about the experience and aftermath of women’s service in Vietnam. Joining the six women is one man who plays 28 male roles.

A limited number of free tickets for each performance will be available (first-come, first-served) until one week before each performance date (listed below).

Please note:

These tickets cannot be reserved online. Please direct all inquiries to the Wheaton Drama box office, at (630) 260-1820. Please leave a message specifying the date you would like tickets, the total number of tickets desired, and the number of military or students in your group.
The free ticket offer applies only to military personnel and veterans. Guests joining them must buy a ticket. For educational groups, any teacher escorting a group of 10 or more students will also receive a free ticket.

“A Piece of My Heart” runs March 23 through April 15, 2018. (There is no performance on Easter Sunday, April 1.) Performance times are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays. The theater is located at 111 N. Hale St., Wheaton, Illinois.

Playhouse 111 is wheelchair accessible. Audio-enhancement devices are available at no charge. For further details, please visit https://wheatondrama.org.
