Whitworth Touring Theatre Production Explores Body-Image Issues
Whitworth College's touring production of Mirror, Mirror: The Body Image Show will be staged in Spokane March 9-11 and at locations throughout Southern California March 18-24.
Through stories, sketches and statistics, Mirror, Mirror explores how factors such as peer influence, family and the media shape our ideas about body image. Developed by Whitworth students based on research, interviews and personal experiences, the original production has been a hit since 1997 with audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest. The 2006 tour features an updated version of the performance. The 45-minute show is appropriate for ages 10 and older and will be followed by a discussion session.
Following is information for upcoming Mirror, Mirror performances in Spokane and California.
Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private, liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The college enrolls 2,400 students in more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs.
