L.A. theater group Theater by the Blind, the only theatre troupe composed entirely of blind actors, is getting a fundraising boost for their post-apocalyptic show, “Point of Extinction” with the help of “Twilight” actor Kellan Lutz.
Moved by the work the non-profit is doing, Lutz will match up to $10,000 in total donations to Theater by the Blind, after attending on of their shows.
Theater by the Blind, a subgroup of CRE (Create, Reflect Empower) Outreach, offers services to veterans, the blind and disabled community in the L.A. area.
“Point of Extinction” which runs through July 7 takes place 100 years into the future where a supervolcano leaves many disabled and 60 percent of the population blind. As a result, the U.S. president becomes a dictator and passes a law requiring them to take a serum that will cause them to regain their site, even though she knows that 1 out of 3 people who take it might die.
“Point of Extinction” will run at the Blue Door Theater in Culver City until July 7. To donate along with Lutz, click here. For ticket information please visit the website.
