The event is a fundraiser.
Raising funds to make sure all twenty cast members from Robey’s 2014 play, The Magnificent Dunbar Hotel written by Levy Lee Simon, will be able to make the trip to Winston/Salem NC in Aug.
The Company has been invited to perform @ The National Black Theatre Festival (08/03 thru 08/08, 2015). That’ll be on the Wake Forest campus.
The budget to make this happen is still unmet, thus this June 20th fundraiser.
The campaign goal: @ $32,000, more than Eighteen Thousand of which has been pledged and paid. An on-line request to Delta Airlines is pending. A GoFundMe page remains active with over $7500 raised from thirty-eight donors.
The June 20th fundraiser is an opportunity for the cast to re-connect, have fun themselves performing memorable scenes and performing classics from the careers of some of the play’s characters –Lena Horne/Ethel Waters/Duke Ellington… .
Our goal: being able to pledge each dollar raised to the travel/hotel/food/actor per-diem’s and Festival production expenses.
