Gut Check


Contributing Writer

Emmy Award-winning actress Kristen Johnston will be appearing at the City Opera House on Sept. 26 to headline an event hosted by Addiction Treatment Services.

“We made the connection with Kristen Johnston in trying to come up with an event that would be both powerful and fun,” said Hubbell. “Kristen's book, along with her work to fund a sober high school in New York City, is relevant to ATS' work because she is helping her own community face this issue. Plus, her book, ‘GUTS,’ is raw, honest and laugh out loud funny, and we think anyone can see at least a little of themselves in this book whether they're addicted to drugs, alcohol or their smartphone.

“Additionally, we have partnered with local filmmaker Arron Dennis from StoneHut studios to make a short documentary about the evening as a way for Kristen to promote the idea of doing similar events around the country. ATS was the first organization that asked Kristen to be a part of this type of event, and she was excited to do so,” Hubbell stated.

The event, entitled “GUTS – An Evening With Kristen Johnston,” will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the City Opera House. Tickets for the event start at $15, with VIP tickets going for $50.
