Pittsboro, NC - The Northwood Arts Education Department and the cast of the Northwood spring musical, will present a very special Young People's Matinée of this year's production, Into the Woods, on Sunday, March 22 at 2 p.m. Admission will be Free with a contribution for the CORA Food Pantry.

"I think our first act is appropriate for any child over the age of 4. This will be the first NHS production that my daughter will be in the audience for and she is 5. The second act has more of a serious, and at times frightening, overtone. Due to the serious nature of the second act, we will not be insulted if parents with small children opt to leave during intermission. We are excited to present a Sunday matinee performance on March 22 that will be open to children and their parents only. We are planning to work with CORA Food Pantry to use canned foods as the entrance fee. In this way we be helping out our community, providing extremely low cost entertainment for our young people, and providing additional performance opportunities for our own kids," commented director Lori Carlin when asked about the ages for this production.

The CORA Food Pantry has been providing emergency food assistance to Chatham County families for the past two decades. During this time they have provided a vital link in the safety network of health and human services agencies throughout our county. It was founded in 1989 as the Chatham OutReach Alliance, Inc. (CORA) with the sole mission of providing emergency food to those in need throughout Chatham County. Overall demand for help remains far ahead of last year. From July 1 through December 31, 2008, CORA provided weekly grocery supplies to feed 2,019 families comprising 7,564 individuals. This represents a 74% increase in per-person weekly food rations compared to the same period last year. Nearly half of those serves are children; many others are senior citizens.
