THEATER: Quilt for 'Rent'
Argenta Community Theater is seeking to create a community AIDS quilt in conjunction with its production of Jonathan Larson's musical "Rent," onstage July 26-Aug. 5 at the theater in North Little Rock's Argenta neighborhood. The theater is asking individuals to create and dedicate their own quilt block as a memorial to a loved one who died of AIDS. Include the person's name and their dates on the block. The theater will sew the quilt blocks "into a massive, stage encompassing quilt that will be revealed during the final number of the production," according to a news release.
Small print: "We ask that you provide the block with zero backing or quilting batting so that we can make this drop as light as possible. Do not exceed a block bigger than 2 feet by 3 feet and [it should be] square or rectangular. If you choose to create a circular block, please adhere it to a rectangular secondary piece so the block is indeed square in nature."
Quilt blocks are due by July 2; there is no limit to the number of blocks any one person can submit. The quilt will be on display through the theater's current season.
