Lexington Children's Theatre Calls On Special Actors For Fundraiser
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Lexington Children’s Theatre will present its largest annual fundraiser this Saturday. The evening brings together a host of talent.
The theatre’s annual Celebrity Curtain Call raised over $25,000 last year and organizers hope to top that number this year.
"We change the theme every year. This year is Once Upon a Time, so clearly we're going to have a fairy tale theme. The event consists of a cocktail hour, where we have heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks and then that is followed by a show on our main stage that features scenes from children's plays enacted by local celebrities and business leaders," says theatre development Rachel Ray
Among those celebrities are Lauren Mink, a Hollywood week finalist on American Idol, and Jessica Casebolt, Miss Kentucky 2012. The fundraiser is now in its fifth year. Funds raised go the theatre’s programming.
