Signature Theatre Holds SUMMER HUMMER Benefit for Take Care of Our Own Tonight, 8/20

The Summer Hummer, DC theatre's most revealing variety show, plays a benefit performance at Signature Theatre for Taking Care of Our Own, which helps Washington theatre professionals with emergency needs, tonight, August 20 at 7 p.m.

Like nothing else you've seen on Washington stages, this one-night only burlesque variety show features a cast of some of Washington's favorite performers raising the roof with the risky and risqué.

The Washington Theatre Community is joining forces to present the first annual Summer Hummer as a benefit for Taking Care of Our Own, a program of theatreWashington.

The show features musical direction by Jenny Cartney and Gabe Mangiante, lighting design by Colin K. Bills, and sound design by Matt Rowe.

Summer Hummer is intended for audiences 18 years and older.
