World Premiere of CRE Outreach’s MARCHING ON


The Wallis
9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA


GRoW @ The Wallis presents the world premiere of CRE Outreach’s production of MARCHING ON – an original play written by and starring eight military veterans from Veterans Empowerment Theatre (VET), an organization dedicated to presenting a first-hand view of the soldiers' experiences in their rawest form, unfiltered by press, political, or military censorship – in a special engagement at The Wallis’ Lovelace Studio Theater, on Thursday, June 28 and Friday, June 29, 2018 at 8pm. This artistic journey brings veterans’ personal stories to life from boot camp to returning home, highlighting the difficulty of transitioning back into society and exposing the inner turmoil of the lasting scars, both external and internal, endured from combat. For one veteran, her transition unlocks memories that have been hidden away for years, another feels rejected because of the color of his skin, while others realize that, above all, family matters most. Though alone in their stories, these heroes come together as a unit as they search for the strength to keep marching on.

Directed by Greg Shane, Artistic Director of CRE Outreach, MARCHING ON features Veterans Empowerment Theatre (VET) members Josie Benford (AL Army National Guard), Irene Cruz (U.S. Marine Corps), Paul E. Johnson (U.S. Navy), Monty Montgomery (U.S. Air Force), Jefferson Reid (U.S. Army), Mason Vokes (Reno Air National Guard), Judith Welch (U.S. Army), and Carla Brame Wilkerson (U.S. Marine Corps).

Running time for MARCHING ON is 90 minutes with a 10-minute intermission. Single tickets are now available at $15. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call The Wallis Ticket Services Office at 310.746.4000. The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts is located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Boulevard., Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

(The play continues its theatrical run July 13-22, 2018, at The Blue Door, 9617 Venice Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm. Opened in April 2018, The Blue Door, CRE Outreach’s new theater in Culver City, is the first theatre of its kind: a dedicated performing space for the voices and stories of people historically marginalized by society.)
