Bid To Appear in Broadway's MOTOWN, Support Vineyard Arts Project

Berry Gordy's MOTOWN returns to Broadway this summer, after chalking up over 700 performances in its original 2013 Broadway production that featured an amazing cast recreating the excitement of music legends like Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and so many more.

One of the show's many climactic moments comes when Diana Ross releases her first solo single, "Reach Out and Touch!," and takes the stage for the first time without The Supremes.

Charitybuzz's new auction offers two tickets for MOTOWN and the chance to be a part of that scene, featured on stage for approximately two minutes.

The winning bid will support Vineyard Arts Project, a performing arts residency space and an incubator for the creation of new work in dance and theatre. Located on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Arts Project provides visiting artists with the necessary time and rehearsal space to focus solely on the development of their new work. Past artists include Dance Theatre of Harlem, James Lapine, Benjamin Millepied and PigPen Theatre Company. Visit vineyardartsproject.org.
