The Shadowbox focuses on three terminally-ill patients, who are in their last days at a hospice. All they are interviewed about their own views on life, dying, and death. Michael Cristofer created the Pulitzer-Prize winning drama.
During The Shadowbox's run, Hosparus will receive a portion of the show's earnings and will have information available at the show.
Following The Shadowbox will be the rock musical Hair, running in mid-May. Auditions for the show are on March 6 and 7. More information on the show can be found at the Clarksville Little Theatre
