KU students to perform in AIDS benefit

May 6, 2007


Kansas University's theater and film department and Headmasters Salon will present "Colors," a benefit for the Douglas County AIDS Project, at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. today. The performances will be at the Inge Theatre in Murphy Hall.

Featured in the benefit are 17 students enrolled in the Musical Performance for the Actor class taught by John Staniunas, an associate professor and chairman of the department.

The idea for "Colors" started with Jim Grimes, owner of Headmasters, an Aveda concept salon, who wanted to expand on Aveda's spirit of giving back to the environment.

Selections will include such songs as "Color of My Life," "Look to the Rainbow," "Yellow Submarine," "Over the Rainbow," "That Terrific Rainbow" and "Rainbow Connection."

Call 864-3982 for ticket information.

Last spring, a similar benefit, "Features," raised more than $3,000 for DCAP.
