Rivertown Theaters Will Announce 6th Season at Annual Party & Fundraiser
The public is invited to one of the best entertainment evenings of the year when Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts presents its annual Season Announcement Party & Fundraiser on Saturday, January 7, 2017 and reveals the exciting line-up for the 2017-2018 season. This year's theme is "Musical Shows and Muses Shoes."
The evening begins at 7:00 pm with a wine and champagne reception. Doors open at 7:30 pm for seating in the theater. The show begins at 8:00 pm with co-artistic directors, Gary Rucker and Kelly Fouchi presenting a laugh-filled video retrospective of the past season followed by their always entertaining announcements of the individual shows for the 2017-2018 season with performances from each upcoming production.
Guests will enjoy an open bar with champagne, wine, beer, and soft drinks as they arrive, beverage service during the evening and desserts and champagne after the show. A highlight of the event will be the silent auction of three favorite items from past years -- "a walk-on role", "VIP Suite for show of choice" and the "VIP parking spot." Attendees will also be able to purchase raffle tickets during the evening for a chance to win specially created Muses shoes, themed for each announced 2017-2018 show. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 or $30 at the door. Proceeds from the evening will go directly to support Rivertown Theaters.
"We are so proud to be announcing our 6th season!" said Kelly Fouchi, co-artistic director. "The focus of this year's event is simply to have fun and showcase our exceptional entertainment. It's our annual 'thank you' to all of our supporters. Riverttown Theaters' audiences have grown tremendously over the years and we are truly grateful and thrilled by the metropolitan community's response to our work. The critics continue to be unanimous in their high praise and glowing reviews, but we could not accomplish this level of professionalism without the support of the general public. In our five seasons we have relied solely on private company and individual sponsorships, program advertisers, ticket sales and season subscriptions to help us continue bringing the "best of Broadway" shows, locally-written productions, children's theater and special learning programs to the New Orleans area. This evening is our way of making them feel a part of our Rivertown Theaters family."
