Broadway Star to Perform for Mustard Seed's Autism Project

Julia Murney will perform a concert at The Sheldon Concert Hall Monday, April 14, at 7 p.m. to benefit the Mustard Seed Theatre Autism Education Project. (This event was originally scheduled for March 3, but was rescheduled because of inclement weather.)
 
Murney played “Tami” in the New York production of “Falling,” but she is better known for playing “Elpheba” in Wicked. In St. Louis she played another “green girl” — “Fiona” during the MUNY’s 2013 production of "Shrek."
 
The goal of Mustard Seed Theatre’s Autism Education Project is to create a valuable teaching tool for educators in a variety of settings. The reprised production of “Falling” this April at Mustard Seed Theatre will be professionally filmed and edited to create an educational DVD, with curriculum material for classes ranging from education to family counseling to behavioral analysis. The estimated cost for the entire project is $30,000.

Tickets are $25 for balcony seats and $30 - $40 for orchestra seats. A limited number of premium tickets are available for $125, which include free parking in the Sheldon parking lot and a private post-show reception with Murney and the St. Louis cast of "Falling." Pre-sales to the Mustard Seed Theatre reprise of “Falling” will be on sale before and after the show. 

Tickets are available through Metrotix.  For more information or questions, please contact the Mustard Seed Theatre box office Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., or by phone at 314-719-8060.
