Performathon @ Bridge Street Theatre This Weekend [Berkshire on Stage]
Do you (or anyone you know) have a talent you want to share with the world? This Memorial Day weekend, Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre will give you a chance to strut your stuff, whatever it may be, when they present the Performathon fundraiser in their beautiful new Mainstage auditorium.
Want to haul out that old accordion or maybe see your child perform her magic act on the stage of a professional theater? Or perhaps you’ll hear your neighbor play ukulele, sponsor your plumber to come and tap dance, or enjoy your friend from work reciting his Shakespeare sonnet or performing that song from Les Mis. Now’s your chance! The organization’s first-ever Performathon is the culminating event of the theater’s push to raise $35,000 for its Capital Campaign. All proceeds go toward the Campaign, and all donations are tax deductible.
As part of the event, Bridge Street Theatre will also be attempting to break the Guiness World Record for most signatures on a piece of theater memorabilia. They’ll begin collecting signatures on a big golden cupola (which was removed from the theater’s roof during its recent renovation) in early May, and the attempt to reach a goal of 700 signatures will culminate at the Memorial Day weekend event.
On both days of the event, $1 snacks will be available including hot dogs, cupcakes and more. There will also be raffles and a 50/50, all of it in a family-friendly, county fair atmosphere. Bridge Street Theatre invites everybody to perform or just to come and enjoy all the incredible talent in our local community.
