Gettysburg Community Theatre Announces Theatre Scholarship Fund Cabaret
(GCT) the not-for-profit 501c3 community theatre located at 49 York Street in historic downtown Gettysburg, will present a Cabaret performance by its Founding Executive/Artistic Director, Chad-Alan Carr, on Saturday, September 29th at 8pm, which includes a wine and cheese reception for patrons before and after the concert. The cabaret is presented annually around the director's birthday as a benefit for GCT's Taylor Zimmerman Memorial Scholarship Fund. During the cabaret, Carr will announce the 2019 Season.
Carr directed Taylor Zimmerman in musicals at Bermudian Springs High School and after Taylor's tragic passing not long after his high school graduation, Carr asked the Zimmerman Family to start a Memorial Scholarship in Taylor's name at GCT. The scholarship has helped students of musical theatre at GCT with classes, camps, and private lessons for the last several years. Past recipients include: Marilyn Lopes, Lizzie Pellegrino, Madison Melton, Madelyn Greco, Madison DiNello, Linden Carbaugh, and Aidan Baker-Miller. Performers of this year's Cabaret will assist in the 2019 Season reveal as they and Carr perform songs and monologues from plays and musicals that might be coming to GCT very soon. The performers of this year's Scholarship Cabaret include: Carrie Trax, C. Andrew Adcock, Lexi Connelly, April Howard, Sue McCleaf Nespeca, Kevin Foster, Karen Land, George Muschamp, and Susan Russell.
Tickets are $18 +tax/fees. As the theatre only seats 80, advanced purchase is highly recommended for all GCT shows. GCT is located at 49 York Street within the first block of Lincoln Square in historic downtown Gettysburg in the building that was once The Elks Lodge. GCT box office phone number is 717-334-2692.
