The Friday night Gridiron Show is open to residents of Butterfield Trail Village and their guests. Tickets are $25 each. They are general admission, so seats are first-come, first-serve. The show starts at 7 p.m. and runs about two hours with an intermission. Ticket price includes snacks and drinks at intermission.
If you use Venmo, you can also pay directly to “SPJ-NWA.”
Because the coronavirus remains a threat, especially to older residents, the actors will wear clear masks during the performance that allow speaking to be clear but which greatly reduce transmission of respiration. Audience members are also asked to wear masks during the performance.
What do the proceeds fund?
The professional and student chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists, which sponsor the show, use proceeds from the Gridiron Show to fund journalism scholarships and provide continuing education opportunities for university students and professional journalists.
