One of our newest programs at ASU Gammage reaches out to a very special group in our community, families of deployed Arizona National Guard Soldiers and Airmen.
The Military Family First Nights program will bring 100 family members of deployed Arizona National Guard Soldiers and Airmen to see three shows at ASU Gammage throughout the year.Thursday night’s LITTLE HOUSE show got the program off to a great start!
The families enjoyed a magical evening of theater, which provided great entertainment and an opportunity to spend quality time together. The families loved seeing the classic Little House story brought to the stage and praised the family values of the production.
The night ended with a special chance for the group to meet with members of the cast and crew, including Melissa Gilbert. Melissa Gilbert shared with the group that her 20 year old son is a Marine, and many other company members also have military personnel in their families.
Meeting the cast and crew members was definitely a highlight of the evening and very meaningful to the families.
I know that all of us here at ASU Gammage are honored to have the opportunity to work with military families, and to show our appreciation for the many sacrifices they make for our country. We look forward to creating more memorable nights for these terrific families.
