Melora Hardin, Steven Weber Set For A Concert for Victor: A Benefit 9/13


The Office's Melora Hardin (Broadway's Chicago), WINGS' Steven Weber (Broadway's The Producers) and That's So Raven's Anneliese van Der Pol (Broadway's Beauty & the Beast) will perform in CONCERT FOR VICTOR: A Benefit at the Carrie Hamilton Theatre at The Pasadena Playhouse. This one-night-only event will take place on Tuesday, September 13 at 7:30 PM. All proceeds go to the Rodriguez Family Care Fund.

The evening will also feature performances from Ava Gaudet (Broadway's Rent), Charley Izabella King (Broadway's The Producers), Leigh Ann Larkin (Broadway's Gypsy & A Little Night Music) and others to be announced.

This concert will benefit 23-year-old Victor Rodriguez and his family. In June 2011, Sacramento newlyweds Victor and CrystAl Rodriguez went parasailing on the last day of their honeymoon in the Bahamas. At a height of approximately 200 feet their harness snapped, and they fell into the ocean. Crystal was killed, and Victor suffered severe injuries. Neither of them had health or life insurance. They had only been married 12 days.
Tickets are $99 (plus a $4.00 ticketing fee) and includes admission to the post-show reception in The Playhouse's VIP Lounge. All tickets are General Admission. Seating is limited to the intimate concert benefit.

All of the proceeds including the $4.00 per ticket fee (generously donated by Patron Manager) will go toward Victor's medical & recovery expenses.
CFV: A Benefit will be directed by Jordan Kai Burnett, featuring accompaniment by Dr. James Lent. The evening is produced by Sacramento-area native Jonathan White.

In a statement, The Pasadena Playhouse Artistic Director Sheldon Epps said "It is always an honor to be able to provide space in our beautiful facility for worthy and important causes. The Playhouse stage is there for the creation of our art, yes...But it also exists to support important fundraising efforts as we have often done in the past, and do again with great pleasure for this valuable event."
