WITNESS: Positive Change Award

By Mithra Ballesteros, First Stage WITNESS task force member

This Sunday, at the conclusion of the 1:00 performance, we will be presenting the 2009 Positive Change Award to Senator Herb Kohl. Although the senator will not be able to accept his award in person, First Stage Managing Director Rob Goodman will speak to the audience about Sen. Kohl's commitment to our wonderful state. In the audience on Sunday will be a group of foreign exchange students and their families.

Following the show, these AFS students will participate in an extended talkback led by Rob and all are looking forward to a frank discussion of the role of the KKK in our country's history. No doubt the students will be interested to hear from Rob, but First Stage will be all ears for their reaction to WITNESS too!
