StarStruck Theatre offers family fun at annual fundraiser
Submitted By Lori Stokes
StarStruck Theatre - Youth Performing Arts invites the greater Bay Area community to "saddle up the kinfolk and high-tail it" to the Saddle Rack dance hall in Fremont for their 2012 annual fundraiser on Sunday, May 27.
"We had so much fun last year at the Saddle Rack, we wanted to do it again," said Lori Stokes, StarStruck Theatre Artistic Director. "This year we really want to encourage everyone to bring the kids. They'll have a blast riding the mechanical bull, and line dancing on the huge dance floor! Plus, Saddle Rack has an amazing sound system. It's going to be a night of fun that you won't want to miss," she enthused.
The hootenanny begins with a buffet dinner, and continues with line dancing, bull riding, silent and live auctions, and a sneak peek at the summer show, "Legally Blonde, The Musical." Tickets are on sale now for the summer main stage production, performed inside the Jackson Theatre at Ohlone College in Fremont, July 27-August 11.
Funds raised from the evening's festivities, as in past years, will fund scholarships for young artists' tuition, production costs for shows, and help to underwrite the Theatre for the Schools and START (Student Training in the Arts) education programs. Last year's event raised $10,000 and StarStruck is hoping to match or exceed that amount. For more details about the annual fundraiser and to purchase tickets, visit www.starstrucktheatre.org, or call the box office at (510) 659-1319.
Established in 1995, StarStruck Theatre is an award winning non-profit youth performing arts organization that provides education and training to the next generation of performers. Entertaining the community for over 17 years, StarStruck has developed a reputation for Broadway style musical productions of uncompromising quality. Once you've seen a StarStruck show, you'll never see musical theatre in the same way again!
