It is Peter and Rita’s wedding day and their love and joy are evident to everyone. But Rita’s sweet gesture of giving a kiss to an elderly stranger turns their world upside down when her soul is exchanged with his. Peter is at first confused by Rita’s dramatic personality change, but once he realizes what has happened he searches frantically for the old man and to find a way to switch back their souls. Yet, even as he struggles with this overwhelming, and increasingly alarming situation, he comes to realize that his love for Rita truly transcends any physical form.

Eastbound Theatre would like to thank everyone who came to see Sylvia, and to report that through your generosity we were able to make a wonderful donation to Missy’s Mission.

Paige Miglio, Executive Director of the Milford Arts Council (MAC), and Nancy A. Herman, Chairperson of Eastbound Theatre, (a division of MAC), are seen here presenting a check for $1673 to Jessica Miccio of Missy’s Mission.

Missy’s Mission is a registered non-profit organization that finds forever homes for rescue and homeless dogs and puppies, and also works with foster children, helping them learn to create loving and lasting attachments through their relationships with dogs and puppies.

The money was raised primarily through a special benefit performance , held on February 10, of Eastbound Theatre’s recent production of Sylvia by A. R. Gurney. All proceeds from that performance went to Missy’s Mission. In addition, the check included money from audience donations, and sponsorships by local dog-washing business Give The Dog a Bath and individual supporter Janet James.

According to Miccio, who runs the organization with her wife Audra Miccio, the money will be used to help pay for veterinarian services, food, transportation, adoption fees, crates, toys, and treats.
