Building an understanding of the pathways to the opioid epidemic and its impact on individuals and communities.

From Thursday July 25 through Saturday July 27, the nationally-acclaimed M-Uth Theater will be presenting six performances of its newest work “ADDICTIONARY: THE OPIOID CRISIS DEFINED” at the Ware Center, 42 N. Prince Street, Lancaster, PA.

While there is no admission fee, free-will donations will gladly be accepted to support Lancaster County Joining Forces, a local coalition coordinating efforts to reduce opioid addictions and deaths. The play is intended to help build an understanding of the pathways to the opioid epidemic and its impact on individuals and communities. It reminds us that treating addiction as a disease can begin the process of recovery for people living with addictions, as well as for their families and friends.

The performance times are Thursday, July 25 at 7 p.m., Friday, July 26 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 27 at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.  Because of the immersive, interactive nature of this production, each audience will be limited to 20 patrons.  Because of the subject matter of the production, attendance is not recommended for anyone under the age of 12.

Patrons interested in reserving tickets can stop in the Ware Center during business hours or call the front desk at 717-871-7018. Reservations can also be requested by emailing Be sure to include the date and time of your requested show.

The M-Uth Theater is comprised of an ensemble of teens and young adults who face or have faced significant life challenges.  They create and perform original plays built on social justice themes.  The ensemble members chose to explore the opioid epidemic because, like so many others in our community and across our nation, some of their lives have been touched by addiction.

Millersville University’s Office of Visual and Performing Arts builds upon a long history of supporting the arts, producing a vast array of unique, educational and exciting events and performances that touch many genres of artistic endeavors.
