Transcript 2 APRI14, 2003 www.houston voice.com HOUSTON VOICE around! Houston Entire run of 'Big Voice' benefits PFLAG/HATCH "The Big Voice: God or Merman?," a new production by a gay couple, is now playing in Houston. A portion of all proceeds from the play's entire April 4-19 run will benefit PFLAG-Houston (Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays) and the PFLAG/HATCH Youth Scholarship Foundation. The opening night of the production, which is Friday, April 4, is a special event dubbed PFLAG Night. Since its inception in 1999, the PFLAG/HATCH scholarship organization has awarded more than $200,000 to college-bound gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender teens. PFLAG-Houston works with families, educators, community and religious groups and others to broaden the understanding and acceptance of gays. In "The Big Voice," creators Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin tell the story of an encounter with a woman named Annette, who cancelled her own suicide after seeing their musical, "The Last Session." Also part of the storyline, a young boy's first transcendent spiritual experience happens at a matinee of "Gypsy" starring Ethel Merman. Not a musical about Merman per se, the "musical solo for two" is a profile of two lives: those of Schalchlin and Brochu. Media reviews of this performance have been glowing. Praising Schalchlin and Brochu, the LA Times said, "The lingering afterglow suggests that the biggest voice in question belongs to neither God nor Merman, but to both performers and their witty, inspiring confessional." ft MORE INFO The Big Voice: God or Mermanr April 4-19 7:30 p.m. Tues, Wed., Thurs. and Sunday 8 pm Fri. and Sat. 4 pm Sat. and Sun. matinees, April 6 and 19 Tickets: $30 Stages Repertory Theatre 3201 Allen Parkway 713-527-0123 www.stagestheatre.com www.thebigvoice.com Spring Fling benefits Houston gay youth The annual PFLAG/HATCH Youth Scholarship Foundation (PHYSF) dinner, the group's major annual fund-raiser, is set for next week. PFLAG Houston and H.A.T.C.H. (Houston Area Teen Coalition of Homosexuals) jointly created PHYSF, which offers a scholarship program to assist worthy youth in the Houston area in pursuing a college education. The scholarship program is for lesbian, gay bisexual or transgendered students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement while in high school or college. In addition to helping provide for higher education, PFLAG and H.A.T.C.H. leaders hope that scholarship recipients will provide positive role models for other youth who cannot be open about their orientation. The program was originated in 1994 by PFLAG-Houston, which was able to grant one four-year scholarship with a total value of $4,000, according to the group's Web site. The number and total value of the grants have increased each year. In 1998, H.A.T.C.H. combined its new program with PFLAG's ongoing effort and PHYSF was formed. In July 2002, a total of $73,500 was awarded in college scholarships. The 2002 scholarships ranged in amount from $10,000 over four years to $2,000 over two years. The application deadline for the PHYSF program this year is May 1. An application form is available on the PFLAG-Houston Web site. ft MORE INFO PHYSF Spring Fling Dinner 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 11 Warwick Hotel • 5701 Main St. Tickets: $100 per person, or $150 for VIP tickets 713-864-3135 PFLAG/HATCH Youth Scholarship Fund (PHYSF) P.O.
