*Gala Event

The UDM Theatre Company is proud to announce a special benefit production of Unheard Voices. Unheard Voices, conceived and directed by retiring faculty member Yolanda Fleischer and written by the UDM Theatre Community, is a play that will address the issues and problems of the overwhelming epidemic of homelessness in Southeast Michigan. The stories behind people experiencing homelessness are as varied and surprising as the population. Our goal is to present the voices, lives, visions, hopes, dreams, pains and spirits of the local homeless community on stage for the audience to recognize and acknowledge through financial support.  

All proceeds and donations raised will go to the Homeless Action Network of Detroit (H.A.N.D.), whose help has made this program possible.   

Unheard Voices will be presented in the Fountain Lounge on the University of Detroit Mercy’s McNichols Campus on February 26*, 27 and 28, 2010. 


The performance on Friday, February 26, 2010 will be a Gala Premiere, Paid Ticket Only event.  Tickets can be purchased by calling 313-993-1540 or email   Tickets are $50, $75 and $100 with a portion being tax-deductible.  The Gala Premiere will feature a strolling dinner from 6:00-8:00 p.m., the performance at 8:00 p.m. and a coffee and desserts afterglow to follow.  There will be a silent auction during the gala to raise additional funds for H.A.N.D.  To purchase your Gala Premiere Tickets online: Click Here!
