PRpicACF of Sedona – Healthy Challenge $75,000 Grant
Awarded to Red Earth Theatre

‘The Mouth Project’, a touring play to be developed by Red Earth Theatre has been named the winning project in the Healthy Challenge. After three nonprofit presentations and deliberation by five expert panelists, Bill Cammock, Board of Advisors Chair of the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona, made the announcement of the Healthy Challenge grant–the largest grant ever awarded by ACF of Sedona.

Equally funded by ACF of Sedona, Northern Arizona Healthcare, and Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation, the $75,000 Healthy Challenge grant was created with the goal of improving overall health in Sedona and the Verde Valley by focusing on oral health and its systemic impact.

‘The Mouth Project’, is a play that will be created, produced and tour with scripts to be made available both in English and Spanish, geared to toward a family audience.It will then be made into a short movie with free DVD download and a dedicated webpage will be available as part of the plan.

‘The Mouth Project’ is a collaboration of several creative Sedona locals. Kate Hawkes, Producing Artistic Director of Red Earth Theatre, leads the project. The team includes former Disney writer Dev Ross, registered dental hygienist Mei Wei Wong, video producer and cameraman Angelo LeMarco, high school Spanish teacher Sarah Reynolds, and audio/photography/lighting/special effects expert Dexx Negron.

As Hawkes noted in her presentation, “Storytelling is a powerful means of reaching people at a deep emotional level, paving the way to intellectual learning and action. Just ask PBS, Sesame Street, and Oral-B.” She adds, “We are grateful that the power of the performing arts has been recognized in our community as a tool for social change and health education.”

Script development will begin this summer with production getting underway in the fall. Stay tuned for ‘The Mouth Project’, coming to a stage, community , or computer near you. For more information and to be included in updates on ‘The Mouth Project’ please email
