MBT Presents its Luncheon On The Aisle Fundraiser
Meadow Brook Theatre Guild, along with our Event Sponsor, Dillman & Upton present the Guild's longest running, and most beloved fundraising event, Luncheon on the Aisle! The event will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the beautiful Meadow Brook Theatre located in Room 207, Wilson Hall at 378 Meadow Brook Road, located on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. The Meadow Brook Theatre Guild is a non-profit 501c(3) volunteer group, which supports and promotes community interest in Meadow Brook Theatre and its outreach programs.
When guests arrive at Luncheon on the Aisle, they will be greeted by MBT Guild members and receive their event programs, highlighting the day's fun-filled events. Guests will also be able to purchase and enjoy homemade goodies from the LOA Bake Shoppe, while they check-out the wonderful baskets for the Basket Raffle. This year's baskets include lots of getaways; including a Chicago Weekend with tickets to see Hamilton the Musical! Mackinaw Island and the Stratford Festival. Tickets for the Raffle can be purchased the day of Luncheon on the Aisle, as well as prior to the event through Guild Members. A special Food Vendor Sponsor serving free samplings of their product and a cash wine bar will be available for the guests to enjoy. Guests will also have the chance to win 100 Michigan Lottery Tickets or A Traverse City Wine Getaway in the New 54 Card Raffles! There will only be 54 cards sold for each prize, thus increasing the odds of winning! Guests will enjoy a delicious box lunch right from their theatre seats! Following lunch, Door Prizes will be awarded, and winners of the Basket and 54 Card Raffles will be announced. Attendees will then enjoy the highlight of the event, a working rehearsal of the play, "The Marvelous Wonderettes!". This hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives, the girls serenade us with classic '50s hits including "Lollipop," "Dream Lover," and "Stupid Cupid." When the girls reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion we learn about the past decade's highs and lows.
