Jess Godwin to Headline BROWN PAPER BASH: A 5-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY, 10/12
Local singer-songwriter Jess Godwin headlines Brown Paper Bash, which also includes a set from The Moxie Sisters, a 1940s-style quintet bringing an old-fashioned twist to modern-day pop classics. Audiences will also hear songs from the reunited casts of past BPBCo. productions like Reefer Madness! The Musical, Godspell, and A New Brain, as well as selections from the Character Breakdown and Proud at Mary's cabarets. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on a silent auction to benefit the company's upcoming spring production.

Executive Director M. William Panek. "We're really excited to have Jess Godwin performing, and have so many Brown Paper Box Co. alumni involved."
