PATIENT CARE TECH TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT

St. Elizabeth Hospital

St. Elizabeth’s Hospital initiates eight-week paid training for Patient Care Techs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of health care occupations is projected to grow eighteen percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Health care occupations are projected to add more jobs than any of the other occupational groups but the costs of getting trained for clinical care positions may be higher than some can afford. To help solve this issue, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital developed a new program to create a bridge into the industry. The Patient Care Tech (PCT) program is an eight-week paid training program that combines classroom education with hands-on clinical experience. The program consists of two classroom days every week for four weeks. Time is also spent working on a hospital unit for the first four weeks, followed by a four-week internship supported by preceptors. Upon successful completion of the program objectives, participants will have a position at the hospital. The second cohort will start in April 2019. Applications are currently being accepted and are available online at www.hshscareers.jobs. To learn more about the program email Gorka at Lleyna.Gorka@hshs.org or call 618-234-2120, ext. 12548.

“INDECENT”

June 20 – 7:30 p.m.

June 27 - 7:30 p.m.

June 28 and June 29 – 8:00 p.m.

June 30 – 3:00 p.m.

Winner of numerous awards including an acclaimed Tony-Winning run on Broadway, “Indecent” by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, is the true story of a groundbreaking scandalous play and the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it. After a rapturous reception in Europe, Sholem Asch’s drama, “God of Vengeance” debuted on Broadway in 1923 at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America. This revolutionary love story, that celebrated Yiddish language and unconventional passion, was forced from the stage by a fearful and reactionary public. Its fate, and that of the actors who cherished it even as they confronted the horrors of the Nazi onslaught, are the subject of “Indecent.” Seven Actors and three musicians play a myriad of roles across continents and decades. This collage of riveting theater, glorious music, exuberant dance and poetry is a heart-stirring affirmation of the transformative impact of love and art in an era of chaos that seems timelier than ever before. Preview Thursday, 06/20/19 7:30 p.m., 06/21/19 and 06/22/19 8:00 p.m., Sunday, 06/23/19 3:00 p.m., Thursday,06/27/19 7:30 PM Friday, 06/28/19 and 06/29/19 8:00 p.m., Sunday, 06/30/19 3:00 p.m.

July 11 thru 13 – 8:00 p.m.

July 14 – 2:00 p.m.

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and scaffold. Jun 27 thru June 29 at 8:00 p.m., June 30 at 2:00 p.m., July 3 at 8:00 p.m., July 5 and 6 at 8:00 p.m., July 7 at 2:00 p.m., July 11 thru 13 at 8:00 p.m., and July 14 at 2:00 p.m.

THEATER PRODUCTION

New Jewish Theater

Written by Tasha Gordon-Solmon. A play that mines disconnections. After Adam and Nicole’s wedding culminates in an awkwardly timed fatality, the reception spins into an increasingly strange evening that leaves the bride and groom questioning just what it is they’re celebrating. But there’s no stopping the festivities: the flower girls are running amuck, the bridal party members are preoccupied with their own flailing relationships, and everyone needs to stop ordering the blue drinks. Comedies end in marriage. Tragedies end in death. This play begins with both. Directed by Edward Coffield Cast: Alan Knoll*, Jessica Kadish, Graham Emmons, Delaney Piggins*, Ryan Lawson-Maeske, Gabrielle Greer*, Will Bonfiglio *member AEA.

UPSTREAM THEATER PLAY PRODUCTION

Please join us for another US premiere from Upstream Theater, in co-production with Stages Repertory Theatre of Houston, and directed by Kenn McLaughlin. Tim Price's Salt, Root, and Roe is a poetic masterwork about the nature of change, the comfort of home, and the eternal bond of love, set against the mythical backdrop of the Pembrokeshire coast in western Wales. The play centers on identical twins Lola and Anest, who are very devoted to each other.  They are aging fast, and with the time they have together more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest’s daughter, Menna, who rushes to her long-abandoned childhood home where her own ideas of love and compromise are tested to the limit. In spite of its somber themes, the play is light, textured and at times very funny—and in the words of one reviewer “like a pebble picked from a Pembrokeshire beach… something to take home and reflect over, something that evokes a smell of the sea..”

TIME STANDS STILL THEATER PERFORMANCE

New Jewish Theater

Time Stands Still revolves around Sarah, a photojournalist who has returned from covering the Iraq war after being injured by a roadside bomb, and her reporter boyfriend James who is swamped by guilt after having left Sarah alone in Iraq. The two are trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals? Playwright Margulies answers these questions, while leaving unanswered qualms regarding the way America deals with war and tragedy coverage. Directed by Doug Finlayson; Cast Wendy Greenwood, Ben Nordstrom*, Jerry Vogel*, Libby Jasper

FORMER MILITARY AS VOLUNTEERS

Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care

November is a traditional time for recognizing the service and commitment of those who have served their country as a member of the Armed Services.

Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care wants to enlist former military personnel from across the Greater St. Louis region to serve as volunteers to assist in providing care and comfort for hospice patients who are themselves Veterans. (Patients who are Veterans often find it easier to communicate with a fellow Veteran.)

FYI, Medicare guidelines require all hospices to have a team of volunteers providing day-to-day administrative and/or direct patient care services in an amount that equals at least 5% of total patient care hours of all paid hospice employees and contract staff.
