Northwest High School’s theatre department will perform and host “A Piece of My Heart,” a tale of young women who aided U.S. troops in Vietnam, on Nov. 9-10 and 12-13, with military service members granted free entry.

“A Piece of My Heart” tells the true story of six women who went to Vietnam to assist U.S. troops – five as nurses and one as a singer – before, during and after the war. The play has been called “the most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation” by the Vietnam Vets Association.

Performances take place at 7 p.m. Nov. 9, 10 and 12 and 2 p.m. Nov. 13 at the school’s Vernon Solomon Performing Arts Center, located at 2301 Texan Drive in Fort Worth. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults. All Northwest ISD employees and Gold Card members receive free admission; any active or veteran U.S. military member and their families also receive free admission.
