Theatre companies have tried a plethora of fund-raisers to stay alive in communities and this weekend you get a chance to not only help a local group but you'll be entertained as well.

Professional playwright Whitney Ryan Garrity is allowing his new musical melodrama, "My Hero", to be produced royalty-free this weekend by the Children and Adults Theatrical Studio. The performances, set for Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. at J&B Coffee shop at 2701 26th, will benefit the local theatre located near 34th and University.

The family-friendly one act is a musical melodrama which was first presented by C.A.T.S. Playhouse in 2009. The seven-member cast gives you a fun evening at only $5 per ticket ($7 at the door). For reservations, call 806-749-3465
