Originally printed 2/23/2012 (Issue 2008 - Between The Lines News)
Cast members of the NETworks touring production of "Shrek The Musical" - coming to Detroit Feb. 28 through March 11 at the Fisher Theatre - will perform in a very special concert to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the John F. Kennedy School PTA in Ferndale. The benefit takes place 7 p.m. Monday, March 5 at The Loving Touch, 22634 Woodward Avenue in Ferndale.
Guests attending can support a good cause as they enjoy an intimate evening featuring a cabaret-style performance by members of the cast from the national tour of "Shrek The Musical." The evening will also feature a silent auction, which will allow guests to bid on items graciously donated by the Broadway community and local businesses. Singer/songwriter Steven Mullan closes out the event with a performance. A cash bar is available during the evening.
Admission for the event is $15 cover charge at the door. All funds raised at the event (admission and silent auction) will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Ferndale's John F Kennedy Elementary School PTA.
"Shrek The Musical," based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand. And his name is Shrek.
Doors open at 6 p.m. This is an 18 and over event.
