A Special Fundraiser for the Williamston Theatre!


Williamston Theatre presents Songs, Friends and Fun: A Fundraiser for the Williamston Theatre

The Williamston Theatre will present an evening of music featuring many of its most popular performers on Sunday, July 24, 2011 at 7 p.m. All tickets are $25 and may be reserved by calling the Theatre at (517) 655-SHOW (7469) starting on July 5.

"This is a tough time for the arts," said the Theatre’s Development Director Emily Sutton-Smith. "In a time when the country’s economic outlook is so bad, it’s natural that donations go down, and ours have. Since they make up over 50% of our annual revenue, it’s a difficult challenge to keep the doors open and continue providing the high quality professional theatre that our audiences have become used to – we have to get creative to raise more funds. Luckily we have amazingly talented people in the Williamston Theatre family, and they have agreed to share their musical gifts with us and our patrons for an evening."

The evening will feature performers familiar to Williamston Theatre audiences including Tobin Hissong, Suzi Regan, Jenn Shaffer, Emily Sutton-Smith, Dana Brazil, Chris Purchis, Michelle Meredith, Joseph Zettelmaier, Aral Gribble and Matt Gwynn. Ms. Regan will be performing several of her very popular songs from the Theatre’s productions of Maidens, Mothers and Crones: Voices from Women of the Midwest and Home: Voices From Families of the Midwest.
