December 5th marks another milestone in the history of our company. The benefit performance of You Are a Petunia In My Garden at Bay Street Theatre will launch an exciting fund drive that will expand the horizons and services of our organization.
We’re going global!
Plans are in the works for a theatrical collaboration with the Volta School for the Mentally Handicapped in Ghana, West Africa. The Artistic Director for the East End Special Players, Jacqui Leader, traveled to Ghana last summer to work with the students in this school. The work she did with them – drumming, dancing, singing and reciting folktales – gave her the vision to develop a collaborative performance piece combining the approaches and techniques of these two mentally challenged groups half a world apart. The working title of this multi-media theatrical performance piece is IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WORLD – GHANA, YOU AND ME
We invite you to join us on December 5th at Bay Street in Sag Harbor for our gala FINAL performance of our current show - Petunia - and to hear more about these international plans for the future. The show starts at 7 p.m., but come early and bid in our silent auction and stay afterwards for a wine reception. Tickets are only $15 and will be for sale at the door or you can reserve in advance by calling 631/267-9101.
Your participation on December 5th will help to advance our mission to develop the extraordinary untapped potential of this special population.
