HEART Annual Report 2019

DIRECTOR’S NOTE

AT HEART, WE TRANSCEND OUR ABILITIES THROUGH COLLABORATIVE ART

Dear HEART Family,

HEART has transformed since its inception in the Summer of 2014. Through our work, we have found that inclusive collaborative art creates a unique opportunity to build lasting relationships and create exceptional art for community enrichment. Together, we have created a loving center where people of all abilities are drawn to participate. Today HEART is proud to be leading the way for inclusion in the Charleston arts community.

STAR - Super Talented Actors Rasslin'

An Original Musical Comedy by HEART

Sunday, June 2nd | Doors 1pm | Performance 2pm

at Charleston Music Hall

37 John St, Charleston, SC

STAR is another original musical by HEART and inspired by the Netflix series, GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). HEART's productions feature some of Charleston's top musicians and vocalists together with the HEARTists. STAR will cover songs by Queen, Bon Jovi, Panic at the Disco, Leslie Gore, Marvin Gaye, LL Cool J and more!

STAR follows a group of out-of-work actors and actresses who take a life-line on an ambitiously pitched wrestling show run by a B-movie director with something to prove to the world, William “Alright, Alright” Simmons and a local soft-spoken, trust-fund kid and wrestling fanatic, Jimmy “The Boss” Miller. When a real wrestler, Reba “The Italian Tickler” Abele joins the team, things begin to look promising for this downcast group.
