Minneapolis, MN, November 10, 2010 --( Upright Egg’s 4th Annual Holiday Event for Charity

Upright Egg Theatre Company (UE) is currently preparing for its 4th annual winter holiday show. Present Project 2010: Letters to Santa will open on Friday, December 17th at the Carleton Artist Lofts in St. Paul; company members Leah Adcock-Starr and Benjamin Kutschied will stage. Upright Egg was founded in 2006 to understand and encourage participation in our collective human experience by creating works driven by a spirit of play, risk and community that embrace the magic of the theatrical event. Present Project 2010: Letters to Santa is a theatrical holiday event that takes place in a party atmosphere. Enjoy appetizers and drinks in this festive setting and watch as Letters to Santa unfold. Written by company members Mandy Kutschied and Leah Adcock-Starr, these holiday letters are sure to put a twinkle in your eye and a shake in your belly. You’ll even get the chance to take your photo with Santa himself.

Present Project is an annual holiday event for charity hosted by UE. Every year, all profits from Present Project are donated to a Twin Cities charity. In past years UE has raised money for the St. Paul Women’s Advocacy Shelter, Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly, and District 202. UE will be donating this year’s profits to Sharing and Caring Hands. Sharing and Caring hands is a compassionate response to the needs of the poor. They are set up to be a safety net organization to help with whatever needs are not being met. This includes but is not limited to providing meals, clothing, showers, shelter, transportation help, rent deposits, rent help, medical assistance, dental care, furniture, school expenses, funeral assistance, and other miscellaneous needs.
