Broadway in Concert: A Gala fundraiser for Seattle Musical Theatre

Friday, July 30, 2010


Seattle Musical Theatre presents Broadway in Concert, a gala fundraiser featuring your favorite local talent singing your favorite musical theatre songs, on Saturday, August 14 at 3 pm and 7 pm.

Facing a slumping economy and stiff competition for grants, Seattle Musical Theatre is raising money towards production costs, replace aging equipment and make improvements to the space.

Installing a bathroom and running water in the dressing room would improve working conditions for actors, crew and musicians who currently have to use a single portable toilet during the run of a show and is high up on Seattle Musical Theatre’s wish list. However, it is often a challenge to cover staff and production costs and extra money is not readily available for this and other such projects.

A fantastic group of actors, who have all been involved with Seattle Musical Theatre (or Civic Light Opera, as they were known up until 5 years ago) at one time, are donating their time, energy and talents to sing a wide selection of musical theatre songs. There will be songs from past shows, current and future shows, as well as some numbers from wonderful musicals that will most likely never grace the SMT stage for one reason or another.

Resident Music Director Paul Linnes will provide accompaniment on the piano.
There will be two performances. One in the afternoon at 3 pm and one in the evening, at 7:30 pm. For the 3 pm performance kids under 12 are invited to attend for free (up to two kids per paying adult). Tickets are $20 per person.

The concerts are held at the Magnuson Park Theatre, 7250 62nd Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98115. For reservations or information, call 206-363-2809 or visit the SMT webpage.
