Tickets on sale for Glen Campbell documentary at Valerie Theatre

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on August 9, 2017

Tickets are now on sale for two showings of “I’ll Be Me,” at the historic Valerie Theatre at 207 Courthouse Square in Inverness, Florida.

“I’ll Be Me” is the acclaimed documentary of singer Glen Campbell’s struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease during his 2012 farewell concert tour in Australia, Europe, and the United States.  Staring Campbell and members of his family, the movie also features appearances by Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Brad Paisley, and other Campbell friends, musicians, and entertainers.

Showings will include a gala opening with reception at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, and a matinee at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 22.  The October 19 screening is reserved seating only at $30, and the Sunday matinee is $15 for general admission.

Glen Travis Campbell was an American singer, songwriter, musician, television host, and actor who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011, and continued to tour with the help of his family. He passed away from the disease August 8, 2017.

Both screenings are sponsored by Grand Living at Citrus Hills and are fund-raisers for the non-profit Alzheimer’s Family Organization (AFO).  Each will be followed by audience Q&A with AFO Executive Director Kathleen Winters and AFO President Debbie Selsavage, owner of the Inverness-based Coping with Dementia LLC.

“I’ll Be Me” at the Valerie will be part of a charitable extended weekend that will include an Alzheimer’s-related art exhibit opening at Central Florida College in Lecanto on October 20, and the Citrus County Walk Aware for Alzheimer’s in Floral City on October 21.

AFO President Selsavage explains, “The Alzheimer’s Family Organization is a regional volunteer-driven, non-profit organization that serves eight west-central Florida counties, including Citrus County.  As a regional charity, all funds raised will be dedicated to programs benefiting caregivers for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia strictly within our area of service.”
