About our process – All proceeds from this concert will go towards our general operating budget, all focused on bringing theater to underserved kids in the community. In addition to the public, we will be inviting our community partners to attend the show at no cost. All actors will be required to participate in a “meet and greet” with the kids after the show. The actress playing Mary will be required to participate in a “High Tea with Mary and Bert” (consisting of pictures, autograph and games) from 1:00-1:45 on the day of the show.
As this is a benefit concert for charity there is no stipend provided.
