The show is designed to raise awareness about the importance of early screening tests for breast cancer. Special guest Debbie Trozelle, from Craig, will speak before the show about how her involvement with the SEARHC Breast and Cervical Health Program's mobile mammography van affected her life. In addition, Gwen Hamilton of the SEARHC Breast and Cervical Health Program and Brenda Isaacs with the SEARHC WISEWOMAN women's cardiovascular health program will give brief talks about their programs and women's health screenings.

The Ketchikan Theatre Ballet senior company features 16 of the school's most advanced dancers. They are led by Marguerite Auger, a former KTB dancer and the troupe's director since 1984. The dance group also will give some classroom demonstrations at Craig elementary school classrooms on March 1. Cake and punch will be served after the performance, and there will be a chance to meet the ballerinas.

Educational brochures and information on women's health issues will be available in the commons area. There also will be an opportunity to donate to the Prince of Wales Cancer Coalition, which exclusively serves island residents, and to the First City Council on Cancer Fund, which is based in Ketchikan and helps people in lower Southeast Alaska who are dealing with cancer.

Tickets are $5 for adults age 14 and older. The show is free for senior citizens and youth age 13 and younger. Tickets are on sale at the SEARHC Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock and Voyageur Book Store in Craig. Tickets also will be available at the door.
