The Seminole Theatre celebrates Military Appreciation month and supports our Veterans
May is Military Appreciation Month and the Historic Seminole Theatre in downtown Homestead is pleased to offer things to do for military veterans and the general public.
On May 21st, the Combat Hippies, a group of Military Veteran Performing Artists will present “Conscience Under Fire” on the Seminole Stage. “Conscience Under Fire” is an original Spoken Word Theater piece that ranges from powerful to humorous and features solos and group work. The group shares their military and Veteran experiences to raise awareness of veteran’s issues and promote Post-Traumatic Growth.
The Seminole Theatre has partnered with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4127, and every Premium Ticket ($47) purchased for the Combat Hippies will sponsor a Military Veteran to see “Conscience Under Fire” and attend a talk-back after the show with the group.
Led by world renowned theater artist and director Teo Castellanos and backed by one of Miami’s most well-known DJ’s, Brimstone 127, The Combat Hippies are a group of military veteran performing artists. The group’s core members consist of Hipolito “Beardman” Arriaga, Anthony “I.E.D.” Torres, Allen “Tatsel” Minor, and Andrew “Dru Phoenix” Cuthbert.
