The 2017 Reality Roadshow takes media stereotypes of homelessness and turns them inside out, exposing the true stories of the streets. With a multi-talented cast of actors, most of whom are or have been homeless, this show will educate and entertain.
Homelessness is a broad topic directly affecting over 10,000 on a nightly basis in Minnesota and indirectly impacting all Minnesotans. This show covers many related issues including foster care, veteran homelessness, shelter systems, addiction and 6 Simple Steps to Living in Your Car. With humor, drama and a song and dance or two, The Reality Roadshow challenges the notion that, in this richest of nations, we must compete for the resources we need to survive.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
