Tuesdays with Morrie: A fundraiser to benefit the Charlie Murphy Healing Fund

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Ave Langley, WA 98260 (map)

The pre-show reception for $100 ticket holders will be hosted in Zech Hall at 2:00 p.m.
The performance on the Michael Nutt Mainstage is at 3:00 p.m.

Please join us for a special staged-reading of Tuesdays with Morrie, starring Eric Mulholland and Andrew Grenier.  All proceeds will go to the Charlie Murphy Healing Fund to help him in his battle against ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig ’s disease).

Based on the international bestselling novel, Tuesdays with Morrie is the autobiographical story of the author, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie's appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig's disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage, and a last class in the meaning of life.

Charlie Murphy, a long-time resident of Whidbey Island, is a creative force around the globe. He co-founded with Peggy Taylor “Power of Hope: Youth Empowerment through the Arts.”  Its regional camps and workshops have spurred youth development in the U.S. and Canada for the past 20 years.  He and Peggy Taylor also co-founded PYE Global (Partners for Youth Empowerment) providing programs around the world that serve tens of thousands of youth and that teach people to work with youth in more creative ways. He is also an accomplished singer/songwriter, facilitator, and someone with a deep passion for life.
