Stage Left Players launch fundraising season with Saturday event
LISBON-Stage Left Players of Lisbon will launch their season fundraising campaign with a “Raise a Glass” Fundraiser for the Trinity Playhouse at 7 p.m. Saturday at the 234 E. Lincoln Way. The SLP Board has set this season’s capital improvement goal at $20,000 with plans to resurface and paint the stucco portions of the building, and create community landscaping that will include seating.
Resident Artistic Director Kandy Cleland announced, “We feel such gratitude to our community, local businesses and friends who donated generously so that we could get the new roof in place. In July 2018, our K-8 kids led the charge when they made the first $2,000 donation to get us rolling. Moving forward, we want to beautify our playhouse exterior to join in the amazing renaissance of downtown Lisbon.”
The Stage Left Board anticipates that the Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Event with Chinese Auction will give them the boost they need to reinvent the playhouse exterior in the spring. Heidelberg Distributors will supply the wine and expertise. Paul Dahman and his improvisational group, The Dinner Theatre Rejects will provide entertainment throughout the evening.
Tickets are $25 and include six wine tastings and can be purchased online at StageLeftPlayers.org. During the evening, additional tasting tickets may be purchased for $3 each or four for $10. For information email StageLeftSeats@yahoo.com or call 330-831-7249.
