Warner Robins Little Theatre to give most of play’s proceeds to HODAC

March 6, 2013 

As part of its commitment to the community, the Warner Robins Little Theatre will dedicate the majority of the proceeds from its next production, “The Vagina Monologues,” to HODAC.

A nonprofit organization, HODAC used to be an acronym for Houston Drug Action Council. But as the organization has become more diversified, the acronym no longer seemed to fit and now the organization is just simply HODAC.

The organization provides residential and aftercare programs for women recovering from substance abuse as they transition back into society. Along with other services, HODAC provides assistance for crime victims, a victim resource center that includes an online library and a site at the HODAC offices with books available on subjects ranging from domestic violence to stalking. HODAC also provides rape prevention classes. Advocates help victims pursue assistance, whether for therapy or any other crime-related expenses, through Georgia’s Crime Victim Compensation Program.

The Little Theatre will present “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler on Thursday and Friday. Show times are at 8 p.m., and tickets are $10 each. The show contains adult themes and language and is not suitable for children. Ninety percent of proceeds will go to HODAC, the remaining 10 percent to the V-Day Campaign, an organization dedicated to stopping violence against women.

The show comprises situations that are experienced by women. Directed by Renee Craycraft and Melissa Garner, the cast includes Darby Arthur, Pat Phillips, Rebecca Chambers, Crystal O’Leary-Davidson, Whitney Cochran, Celia Hohnadel and Leslie Castle

The Warner Robins Little Theatre won’t take much time before preparations begin on its new productions. Auditions for the classic stage comedy “My Three Angels” will be held Monday and Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Warner Robins Little Theatre, which is located at 502 S. Pleasant Hill Road. “My Three Angels” will be directed by Katie Manning, and the show will have roles for men and women.
