(CNS): Cayman HospiceCare will be holding its biannual “Voices for Hospices” show at the Prospect Playhouse on 9 and 10 October as part of international celebrations to mark World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. In a day of support and celebration around the globe, people will perform in what is considered the largest simultaneous musical event in the world.

In Cayman, the celebration will be marked by two shows of “An Evening on Broadway” performed by a cast of 28, which has been rehearsing since March. Musical numbers will include songs from such popular Broadway shows as The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and South Pacific.

Every two years the world comes together and unites in harmony with “Voices for Hospices”.  The theme for the 2015 marking of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is “Hidden Lives/Hidden Patients” which, according to the event’s website, focuses on patients living in unique conditions that often struggle with access to palliative care including children, LGBT individuals, HIV prisoners, soldiers and those living in rural settings.

Before the opening show on 9 October, there will be a champagne gala reception at the playhouse at 6:30pm, with curtain at 7:30pm. The performance the following evening will begin at 6:45pm, to coincide with global timing of recognition of the day.

All proceeds will be used to help keep hospice and palliative care services free to patients and their families.

Tickets can only be bought in advance from Cayman HospiceCare, located at the Conch Shell House on North Sound Road. For more information, email Cayman HospiceCare or call 945-7447.
