Yesterday I wrote about Company of Angels' Peacock Men benefit night for Haiti coming up on Friday, February 5. Now here is another Los Angeles theatre company, the Pasadena Playhouse, who is also stepping up for Haiti with their Benefit Concert for Haiti coming up this Monday, February 1 at 7:30 pm.
The event features theater's finest actors, which have performed in the Pasadena Playhouse's past productions as well as other guest performers including Erica Ash (Baby It's You!), James Barbour (Broadway's Jane Eyre), Shoshana Bean (Broadway's Wicked), Sharon Brown (Crowns) and Billy Blanks, Jr, Doug Carpenter (Camelot) and other surprise guests to be announced.
The Pasadena Playhouse has been around since 1917. It continues to be committed to the development and presentation of a diverse variety of theatrical productions at the highest level of artistry, which is reflected in seasons featuring Tony and Pulitzer award-winning plays, as well as in outreach and artistic programs, which have doubled in size in the last two years. Currently, it is under the artistic direction of Sheldon Epps.
Their Benefit Concert for Haiti will also feature raffle tickets to Los Angeles' best theatres including L.A. Opera, the Pantages, Center Theatre Group (Mark Taper Forum, Kirk Douglas Theatre) and more. Other raffle items will include Broadway swag and memorabilia, and personal, home, and entertainment items such as beauty supply packages, haircuts, autographed CDs, theme park passes and much more.
Tickets are now available for $25, $50 and $100, with all proceeds to benefit Unicef Children's Fund, The Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund and Save the Children. You can also call the box office and make a donation if you cannot attend and wish to support the cause. Tickets can be purchased online at www.Pasadenaplayhouse.org. By phone by calling (626) 356-7529. Or in person by visiting the box office at 39 S. El Molino Ave, Pasadena, CA.
