'Trip' Audience Choice Take $288

Posted: Wednesday, April 11, 2018, 9:17am

Curtain Players patrons generously donated $288.97 to the community theatre’s Audience Choice Awards program during recent performances of The Trip to Bountiful.

Money from this long-running fundraiser is designated for routine maintenance and improvement expenses at the Harlem Road playhouse. At each Curtain Players performance, audience members are invited to make a donation to the theatre in the name of a cast member.  Actors from each of the season’s six productions — in whose names the most money was donated — receive the Audience Choice Awards at the annual season-end event.

The 2016-17 Audience Choice Awards program generated approximately $2200. To date, this season’s take totals $1202.57. This fundraising initiative continues during the May 4-20 performance run of Exit the King.
