Strand honors National Stuttering Awareness Day with free showing of “My Beautiful Stutter”



The Strand Theatre in coalition with Jubilee Therapy, LLC and the Westside Theatre Foundation will be hosting “My Beautiful Stutter” premiere, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. at the Strand Theatre (717 Clay St.).

The premiere is in honor of National Stuttering Awareness Day and will show a film following several people with a “beautiful”stutter.

The premiere is the brainchild of Ashton Ozark, and the Strand Theatre is hoping to bring something different to the community that will pique everyone’s interest.

“It’s a brand new film, a documentary that follows several people with a stutter,” said Daniel Boone, program director of the Strand Theatre, of “My Beautiful Stutter.”

“The idea of the movie is basically positive reinforcement that it is OK to have a stutter.”

The event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information contact Daniel Boone at 601-529-7252.

“[The Strand Theatre is] trying to just fulfill our mission of working with the community and bringing things downtown that are important to members of the community,” Boone said.
