On Oct. 14 Playhouse Friends are invited for an evening of inspiring music and storytelling from the impactful Séan McCann. This East Coast musician spent many years as part of Canada’s beloved “Great Big Sea” before he launched a solo career saying that his heart yearned to perform in smaller, more intimate venues where he could connect, inspire and help heal with his music. Now he’s ready to sing in support of the Bancroft Village Playhouse at the annual Friends of the Playhouse Gala.
“We think this is the perfect offering for the annual Friends of the Playhouse Gala because through every show we produce, host and create; we also connect and inspire,” says Playhouse manager and Hospice coordinator, Heather Brough. “A few months ago when Séan reached out to us, wanting to get involved with the theatre, we were just thrilled!”
Brough wants Playhouse supporters to gather at this event to help celebrate the year that has passed and to help dream of the future.
“Grab some fiends and get some tickets to this special evening and share in the magic,” Brough adds.
Brough asks supporters to also consider making a $100 donation and becoming a “Friend” of the Village Playhouse for the 2016-2017 season. Names of supporters will be prominently displayed on the Theatre’s “Friends” list and these contributions go directly to the restoration of Bancroft’s true gem.
“We believe something very special continues to grow in the Bancroft Theatre District and we look forward to achieving more success with the support of this community,” Brough says.
Tickets are $35 and on sale now at the Hospice House, at posies, Harvest Moon and online at boxofficebancroft.com. All proceeds from this show support the Playhouse restoration fund to ensure the continues operation of the Village Playhouse.
