Paperwhites Payout $170

Posted: Sunday, December 17, 2017, 3:50pm

The holiday floral fundraiser sponsored by Sunbury-based Watson’s Acres to benefit Curtain Players generated $170 for the community theatre company.

Watson’s Acres sold paperwhites arrangements during the run in late November through mid-December during the run of Crimes of the Heart, and pledged one-third of each arrangement’s purchase price to the theatre.

Molly and Brent Watson are proprietors of the farm. Molly Watson is a veteran Curtain Players volunteer who has worked on hospitality teams, as a stage manager and technician, and actor. Her onstage credits include The Diary of Anne Frank, The Skin of Our Teeth, and Pack of Lies.

This was the first partnership between the farm and the theatre. Each entity expressed appreciation for support of this initiative and the opportunities to reach new audiences.
