Patrons Donate $679 Thru Audience Choice

Posted: Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 5:44pm

Curtain Players patrons generously donated $679 to the community theatre’s Audience Choice Awards program during the February 10-26 run of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress.

After four shows, the current season’s tally for this fundraising initiative is $1597.06.

Money from this long-running annual fundraiser is designated for routine maintenance and improvement expenses at the Harlem Road playhouse. At each Curtain Players performance, audience members are invited to make a donation to the theatre in the name of a cast member.  Actors from each cast — in whose names the most money was donated — receives the Audience Choice Award at the annual season-end event.

The 2015-16 Audience Choice Awards program generated approximately $1500 over the run of six productions.
