Flint, MI 48503

Description: It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network - all without denting her 'do!

Don't miss HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony© Awards, including BEST MUSICAL.

Civil Rights Commission to Host Public Forum on Disparities in Access to Quality Health Care

The forum offers an opportunity for members of the Commission and the general public to learn about the barriers that Michigan residents face when seeking health care, especially those barriers related to race, religion, sex, age, physical and mental disabilities, color, national origin, or marital status. The Commission is interested in part because of the link between prevention and early detection and positive health outcomes following serious illness.

"Access to health care is particularly important because so many other things we enjoy in life - work, family, freedom, personal interests - all depend on the foundation of good health. Good health care helps to assure our quality of life,¨ said Civil Rights Commissioner Lisa Peeples-Hurst.

“The Eleventh hour” a modern Easter drama

Signed for the deaf/hard of hearing

The Eleventh Hour is a musical drama about lost love, crimes committed, and second chances. A young couple on the verge of embarking on a life together, rummage through the remnants of childhood mysteries. A single dad struggling to raise his young son in an urban convergence, crumbles under his emotional and financial desperation. A landlady who cares enough to reach out to hurting souls in her community with joy and laughter, extends mercy and compassion as the story of Jesus comes to life before their eyes.
Celebrate the hope that the Easter story brings to our world!

“Deaf Explosion/Meet & Greet Fellowship”
Sponsored by Deaf Evangelism Advocacy For Christ

This event would allow us to reach out to our Deaf Community and embrace a city that has been heartbroken and riveted by violence. Our goal is to empower, inspire, uplift and motivate the DEAF, Hard of Hearing (HOH), and family members/friends of Deaf and HOH, through fellowship, testimonies, informational packets, spoken word, and resource representatives. There will also be free gifts and prizes, food, fun, and fellowship for ALL.

We would like to have a representative and/or information packets regarding services that are available to the Deaf community through your organization. We pray your schedule can accommodate this Powerful Expression of Life. Your presence alone would inspire, uplift and motivate our Deaf Community to strive for GREATNESS. Any assistance for this event would be greatly appreciated.

New Film about Deaf Girl "Guilty Innocence"
True story of deaf girl who was abused by her father

8:30pm - Reception
9:15pm Film with captions; 10:15pm Film without captions

Royal Oak Main Art Theatre
118 North Main Street
Royal Oak, MI 48067
(248) 263-211

Cost: $15.00

1 in every 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.

3 in every 4 Americans personally know someone who is or have been a victim of domestic violence.

1 in 5 women will be raped or sexually assaulted in her lifetime.

This brings us to our film entitled, "Guilty Innocence". Guilty Innocence is a film about a teenage deaf girl who shoots her father after suffering years of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, and her lawyer who can relate, fights to keep her from serving a life sentence in prison.

This script will captivate any audience and it will definitely tug at the heartstrings of anyone that truly has some compassion for human beings. We're hoping this film will encourage viewers to become more in tune with victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

It is our Goal at SwiftWinds Media to create innovative films that heighten the awareness of domestic violence against individuals with disabilities, as well as other issues that go untold in our communities.

With that being said, please join us by attending this benefit premiere on August 12th at the Main Art Theater,118 North Main Street
Royal Oak, MI 48067 (248) 263-2111. Tickets are $15.00 each and a portion of the proceeds will benefit two organizations that service the hearing impaired and women of domestic violence communities .

Please view our movie trailer to get a visual of the storyline and the quality of our work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmAueHy8l-8--
