THE BUZZ: Act-Out for New York: A Concert to Benefit the Victims of Hurricane Sandy
You wont only get your weekend dose of fun, but you will also be benefitting victims of Hurricane Sandy. How exactly? On the evening of Saturday, December 15, Act-Out! Acting School will be hosting a benefit concert called Act-Out for New York: A Concert to Benefit the Victims of Hurricane Sandy.
This two-hour performance is set to begin at 5 p.m. and will feature musical theatre performances of pieces from Evita, as well as folk, pop and rock musicians performing Lady Gaga songs, and more. Several members of the student body of Act-Out, ranging from 12 to 50, such as Adele Wendt, Ashley Chico, Isabella Sirota, Carolyn Dellinger, Mike Whelan and Sarah Glynn-Carr, will also take the stage.
It should be a nice sort of cabaret, said the Artistic Director of Act-Out! Acting School, John Stillwaggon. Itll be an opportunity to bring a little music and a little joy into peoples lives while helping us raise money for a good cause.
Stillwaggon continued, [Im] proud of Act-Outs long history of service. After the earthquake in Haiti, we had a fundraiser; proceeds of acting lessons were donated to Haiti relief efforts.
