Available for sale will be her holiday CD, This Christmas, as well as her newly released, Simply. Nineteen performances of ATMTC's professional production Goodnight Moon were canceled from October 1-19, 2013 due to Adventure Theatre MTC being a resident of Glen Echo Park, although the organization does not receive federal funding;all proceeds of this event benefit Adventure Theatre MTC's recovery.
Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased online at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org.
With terrific new arrangements of your favorite standards such as "The Christmas Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve," "White Christmas," and "Waiting For the Man With the Bag," Sandy's voice and charm will light up ATMTC's stage. With musical direction by Emmy-Award winner Lanny Meyers, This Christmas, both the show and the CD, will be the perfect presents for every music lover on your gift list, whether they were naughty or nice.
Ms. Bainum says of the evening, "I truly hope that people will come out to support ATMTC. I can promise them that on December 8th, they'll see a wonderful show that's filled with holiday spirit, humor and joy. I'm a huge fan of Michael J. Bobbitt and the work he is doing at ATMTC and the holidays certainly seemed like the perfect time to do what we can to help this wonderful organization out."
Michael J. Bobbitt, Producing Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC says of the event, "Ms. Bainum has entertained our audiences for several years now, and her generosity in putting on this holiday concert is unparalleled. We cannot thank her enough for her support of our theatre, and of her dedication to theatre for young audiences. Although the situation is temporarily resolved with the government and the national parks, without a full resolution we may have to shut our doors again so we need as much positivity and holiday cheer as possible."
