Teri Souter, Huntsville Manager of Arts, Culture and Heritage came up with the idea for the play, When Winnie Knew, based on a book by Roy MacGregor. She consulted local actor Grant Nickalls and Roy MacGregor himself and they put together “what was absolutely a spectacular production,” said Huntsville Mayor Scott Aitchison at Huntsville Council’s July meeting, also noting that local musician Sean Cotton composed and performed original songs throughout the play.

“It was done to celebrate of course a rich culture of history in our community, but it was also done in an effort to raise just a little bit more money for the Huntsville Hospital Foundation,” said Aitchison.  If you missed the play, there will be another chance to see it on September 7, 2017.

Proceeds from the play were directed to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation to help with the much-needed purchase of equipment at the Huntsville hospital. You can click on this link, to find out more about the Huntsville Hospital Foundation’s work and its need for ongoing support.
