Looking for entertainment with meaning? The Magik Theatre is showcasing the heartwarming play, Maddi’s Fridge, which will bring you and your family laughter and inspiration.
About Maddi’s Fridge By Magik Theatre
Originally a novel, Maddi’s Fridge addresses the challenges of food insecurity, poverty, and hunger in a relatable way for children. The play centers around two best friends, Maddi and Sofia. After the unfortunate discovery that Maddi has no food in her fridge at home, Sofia is caught between keeping her friend’s trust and helping her friend in a time of need.
The play will provoke lessons of confidence. It will also spark empathy and conversation about hunger, all while supporting the local arts.
Food Bank Donations & Prizes
While the show addresses food insecurity in a way that’s easy to grasp for children, the reality is that many in the area are facing these challenges. That’s why Magik Theatre has teamed up with the H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program and the San Antonio Food Bank to help fight hunger. During the show duration, Magik Theatre will be hosting a food drive and will have food collection bins on display.
You can contribute to their goal of 2,000 pounds of food and bring non-perishable items to the show. According to the organizations, the most-wanted items include: peanut butter, cereal, tuna, beans, rice, macaroni and cheese, full means can/box, chili and soup, canned lunch meats, pet food, and baby food and diapers.
Overachievers? Magik Theatre will be awarding prizes to families who donate over 10 food items!
“By making Magik a place for families to experience the joy and wonder of the theatre, we hope our free performance at San Antonio Food Bank will bring joy to their clients who are our San Antonio families,” said Theatre Artistic Director, Anthony Runfola.
