News and Events

The McLean County Chapter of Compassion and Choices is pleased and excited to present an interactive program:

Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
Illinois State University Alumni Center, Room 116

Heartland Theatre’s YOUNG AT HEARTLAND acting troupe will re-enact four scenarios that illustrate medical decisions that families may face at some point. Choices at such times are difficult and complex; emotions are hard to manage. Being faced with real choices in the future may be made easier by facing those decisions through these powerful re-enactments.

As the audience observes these scenes, they may discover a decision that seemed best may suddenly need to be re-evaluated. They will find their own feelings pulled into the lives being illustrated and will have a stake in the outcome. At some point in the scenes, the action may be paused to allow feedback and discussion.

Scene #1 –- “Hospital Hallway”
Scene #2 –- “Brain Tumor”
Scene #3 –- “Phone Call”
Scene #4 –- “Oh Doctor”

There will be no admission fee or donation request of any kind for this program.
