STAND Las Vegas

Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Nevada Homeless Alliance and STAND Tour Raise Funds and Awareness for Local Homeless

WHAT:

LAS VEGAS (September 21, 2015) – Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada, The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada and Nevada Homeless Alliance are excited to announce the premier of theater sensation STAND, written by Jim Reyland, on Oct. 16 and 17 at the Clark County Library’s Flamingo Theater. Named best new play by the Nashville Scene, STAND raises funds and awareness countrywide for communities and organizations working with the homeless.

“Our goal is to raise money to fight homelessness and addiction across our country. The Nevada Homeless Alliance, Catholic Charities and The Salvation Army will receive 100% of tickets sold in Las Vegas,” Reyland said. “The same thing will happen in the other cities.”

STAND is the true story of Johnny “JJ” Ellis, who spent two drug-addicted decades on the streets of Nashville, and a Good Samaritan who helped him through the struggles and trials homeless individuals endure. David Compton, award-winning director and actor, directs the play, and renowned stage actors Barry Scott and Henry Arnold star in this heartfelt production.
