'L&L' Audience Choice Nets $169

Posted: Wednesday, April 4, 2018, 1:46pm

Curtain Players patrons generously donated $169.72 to the community theatre’s Audience Choice Awards program during February performances of Lettice and Lovage.

Money from this long-running 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 of the season’s six productions — in whose names the most money was donated — receive the Audience Choice Awards at the annual season-end event.

The 2016-17 Audience Choice Awards program generated approximately $2200. To date, this season’s take totals $913.60. This fundraising initiative continues during the performance runs of The Trip to Bountiful and Exit the King.
