'PostSecret: The Show' coming to UCA

CONWAY, Ark. (UCA) — PostSecret: The Show, an immersive, live version of the original online community art project, will present never-before-seen secrets March 11 in the University of Central Arkansas’ Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m.

PostSecret — which started as the blog, PostSecret.com — has garnered half a billion visitors and half a million anonymous secrets, which were later compiled into six best-selling books. Later next month, projected images, videos, three actors and a guitarist guide will lead the Reynolds audience through crowd-sourced narratives, revealing the true stories behind the secrets, which range from hopeful to sexual to shocking.  

“Some of the secrets shared are hilarious, some poignant and some are heart-breaking,” said Julia Dossett Morgan, director of marketing and finance for UCA Public Appearances. “We’ve partnered with many other entities at UCA to bring this show to Reynolds, as we’re all invested in the mental health and well-being of our students, and PostSecret: The Show does a great job of investigating issues like bullying, depression and suicide while balancing those issues with happier topics of love, friendship and secret naughty deeds.”

Before the show, blank postcards will be placed in the Reynolds lobby for audience members to write down their secrets, some of which may be used during the evening’s presentation. This show contains adult themes and mature content. Children will not be admitted, and the age recommendation is 18 years and older.

PostSecret: The Show is sponsored by UCA’s College of Fine Arts and Communication, Student Activities Board, Student Health Services, Counseling Center and Division of Student Services-Vice President Office.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and free for UCA students with a valid university ID. For tickets, call UCA Ticket Central Box Office at (501) 450-3265 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday or toll free from anywhere in Arkansas at 1-866-810-0012 or visit www.uca.edu/reynolds.
