Local actress, Robin Walbeck-Forrest, will perform her one-woman show, “Tits & Asphalt: Why I Walk For Breast Cancer” at Valley Center Stage to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

The show plays one weekend only, Friday, Jan. 20, and Saturday Jan. 21. Showtime for both nights is 7:30 p.m. and the cost is pay-what-you-can.

The show chronicles Walbeck-Forrest’s experiences, and gives her reasons for, walking in a two-day breast cancer event in Canada over eight consecutive summers.

“The breast cancer cause is very important to me and I am equally passionate about theatre,” she said. “It made sense to bridge the two in order to reach out to others.”

“Tits & Asphalt” was originally produced in 2007 at North Bend Theatre and has been updated for the current production.

Walbeck-Forrest has been doing theatre for nearly 30 years. She is regularly seen at Valley Center Stage, recently in “A Christmas Carol” playing the role of Mrs. Cratchit. She also volunteers in PTSA and at Encompass, where she teaches parenting classes.
