Location: The Temple Theatre (203 N. Washington Ave, Saginaw, MI 48607)

If you have a secret to tell, who will you talk to? Your friends? Family? Or write down your secret on a postcard and send to someone you don’t know? You probably never think about the last option, but millions of people have sent their secret to the PostSecret, one of the most popular sites with more than half a billion hits.

The Temple Theatre will host a special performance of a new multimedia, theatrical experience based on the popular PostSecret website. The Temple Theatre is one of a select number of theatres across the country chosen as a site for development of the PostSecret Play. This stage adaptation presents a kaleidoscopic view of PostSecret, featuring real-life stories of how the project has impacted the lives of people around the world and dozens of never-before-seen postcards. It incorporates music, animation and live actors to bring these moving stories to the stage.
