Divas on Hudson will Star Callaway, McArdle, Ripley and Others on June 11th

Some of Broadway's brightest leading ladies will be on hand to celebrate at the Hudson Stage Company's 6th Annual Gala on June 11th. The stars will perform under the stars while audiences picnic by the Hudson River.

Picnicking, for which wine, cheese, bread and desserts will be provided, will commence at 7 PM while the concert itself will kick off at sunset. A silent auction will give audiences the chance to claim such luxuries as a week in a French ski chalet.

Divas on Hudson will feature Liz Callaway (Tony-nominated for Baby, Cats, The Look of Love), Debbie Gravitte (Tony-winner for Jerome Robbins Broadway, Chicago, Zorba), Capathia Jenkins (The Look of Love, Caroline or Change), Andrea McArdle (the original Tony-nominated star of Annie, Les Miserables, State Fair), Karen Mason (8 time MAC award winner, Sunset Boulevard, Mamma Mia, Jerome Robbins' Broadway), and Alice Ripley (Tony-nominated for Side Show, Rocky Horror Show, The Baker's Wife). The evening will be hosted by the only divo in sight, Jason Graae (Ragtime, Forbidden Broadway, Forbidden Hollywood, Snoopy!).

The benefit is produced by Denise Bessette, Dan Foster and Olivia Sklar, and proceeds will go to Hudson Stage Company, a non-profit professional theatre company, in residence at Pace University, Briarcliff campus, Westchester.
Divas on Hudson will take place at 16 Prickly Pear Hill, Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  Attendees should bring their own blankets and picnic baskets.

Tickets, which are each $100, can be reserved by calling 914-271-2811, or through PayPal at
