May 7th, Her Temple Monologues will be at the Arts Center of the Capital Region (265 River St. Troy) offering an empowering and soulful twist to 'The Wizard of OZ', called 'Matters of the Heart'.

Her Temple Monologues (HTM) is a performing arts group which supports community awareness about issues related to domestic violence, poverty and health. These women believe deeply in uplifting others through their performances and community service and are as dedicated and active as they are talented.

The performance features songstress Sibie Lavoz as Dorothy as well as the Arbor Hill Starlites. Plus, there will be vendors on site.

The cost is $25 with a portion of proceeds going to the American Heart Association and United Sisters of New York Educational Scholarship. The show starts at 2pm. For more details, call (518) 248-0574.
