OK, the cast and company of “Wicked” the hit Broadway musical currently in Seattle until November 17th at The Paramount have already donated time to raise money for Marriage Equality with last week’s fundraiser performance. Now the company is going one step further and heading to The Neptune theater in the U-District on Monday, October 29th, their day off, to stage a special musical cabaret to raise MORE funds in the fight for Marriage Equality in Washington State.
Produced by company members, the evening is an opportunity for them to step out of their roles in the musical in music, dance and comedy; and will feature principal company members, as well as members of the ensemble and the touring staff. In addition, there will be a silent auction of items including Wicked memorabilia, and a live auction of several opportunities to join the company backstage at the Paramount Theatre during their run, including a chance to bid on a walk-on role to be in Wicked. The musical is now playing at the Paramount Theatre through November 17. Tickets are available through STG outlets, online at www.stgpresents.org, or by phone at 877-784-4849.
Admission to The Songs We Sing…For Good is by donation. Tickets are available online at http://www.stgpresents.org or by calling 877-784-4849, and will be available at the door. General Admission is $45. A limited number of VIP tickets, which include priority seating and a 6-6:30pm pre-show reception hosted by members of the Wicked company are available for $100. All proceeds benefit Washington Marriage Equality.
While all are welcome the evening is intended for mature audiences, and parental discretion is advised.
The Songs We Sing…For Good is part of an ongoing series of performances by the touring company throughout the country to support charitable causes which advance WICKED’s theme of acceptance and illuminate the musical’s message that people should not be judged on first impressions. The company believes that in these divisive times we must come together to support those in need throughout the country and around the world.
AND, on their day off! Most people do laundry and clean out the litter box on their days off, but these kids are puttin’ on a show! Bless their non-Wicked little hearts!
