Local actress, Robin Walbeck-Forrest, will perform her one-woman show, “Tits & Asphalt: Why I Walk For Breast Cancer” at Valley Center Stage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7 to 9, to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on each night, and the cost is pay-what-you-can. Shawn Fuller directs.

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. 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 The Connection in Bellingham, and was updated and performed at  Valley Center Stage in February 2012.

Walbeck-Forrest has been doing theatre for nearly 30 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre at Western Washington  University. She is regularly seen at Valley Center Stage, most recently as part of the ensemble of “Almost, Maine”, and previously as Mole in  last spring’s production of “Wind in the Willows”. Walbeck-Forrest volunteers locally in PTSA and at Encompass, where she teaches parenting classes.
