Boys and girls from the Hudelson Region residential treatment program were in for a loud Saturday night in January when they were given tickets to attend a performance of STOMP! at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis.
STOMP! is a percussion group that uses ordinary objects to create a musical experience that is not only fun to listen to, but exciting to watch.
The Fabulous Fox Theatre donated 25 tickets to the Family Support Workers, clients out of the Collinsville, Ill., office, and a few lucky staff members for the evening performance on Friday, Jan. 11, and another 25 tickets to the residential treatment staff and clients for the evening show on Saturday, Jan. 12.
Christina was one of the Collinsville clients who attended the Friday night show with her four children — Desi, Tommy, Ryan and Danny.
“It was the best show I’ve ever been to,” Christina said.
Her children agreed STOMP! was a lot of fun. “Those guys can dance,” Ryan said, and Danny added that it was the best night out he’d had in a long time.
Jean-Ann Loyd-Cordevant, an OHU family support specialist who attended the Friday night show, said the show was incredible.
“The performers were unlike anything that I have ever seen before,” she said. “If it had not been for the generous gift from One Hope United, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to experience that. Thank you so much.”
