Maddie’s Fridge addresses the challenges of food insecurity in a relatable way for children to understand, sparking empathy and conversation about hunger. This message perfectly aligns with the H‑E‑B Food Bank Assistance Program that works year‑round to raise awareness and battle hunger in Texas and Mexico and the San Antonio Food Bank’s mission to fight hunger in the San Antonio community. Food collection bins will be on display and H-E-B Hunger Relief PSAs will run at the theatre during the production. 

On October 2, the Magik Theatre will also provide a free performance to San Antonio Food Bank clients at their main headquarters located at Valero Community Engagement Center. SAFB and H-E-B representatives will be on-site providing snacks and hunger relief information to patrons. Capacity is limited.

Maddi and Sofia are best friends. One day, Sofia discovers that Maddi has no food in her fridge at home. Sofia wants to help her friend, but Maddi makes her promise not to tell anyone. What should Sofia do? Based on the book by Lois Brandt,  this heartwarming and hilarious play is a story about honesty, sensitivity, and instilling important lessons in friendship, empathy, and helping
