PAC, Safe Harbor join together
ASHLAND Area residents will be able to enjoy Christmas cheer while sharing it with others thanks to a cooperative program between the Paramount Arts Center and Safe Harbor.
The PAC will present four performances of the Christmas classic “Miracle on 34th Street” on Dec. 6 through 8. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for students, but a resident also may earn a free ticket by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy before Nov. 21. Donation of a toy provides a free ticket with the purchase of a ticket.
The toys will be used as part of the stage set during the Macy’s Department Store scene of the production, and after the play closes, the toys will be donated to Safe Harbor.
Safe Harbor is a domestic violence shelter in Ashland that serves residents in Boyd, Greenup, Carter, Elliott and Lawrence counties. The average daily census of children at the facility is between 50 and 65, said Ann Perkins, executive director of Safe Harbor.
Suggested toys include dolls, baby carriages, toy trucks and cars, large stuffed animals, board games, Easy Bake Oven sets, bicycles/tricycles and sports equipment.
“We are grateful to the Paramount Arts Center for thinking of us,” Perkins said. “We have so many children in our program daily, so this is a thoughtful and wonderful opportunity for our children.”
