JET Co's Wild Party Benefit

Some artists entertain. Some artists make a name. Some artists inspire change.  We do all three. 
Help us bring awareness to the world of domestic violence and provide food, clothing, and living arrangements for women and children seeking shelter in central Connecticut.

You're invited to:

The Wild Party
by Andrew Lippa
Based on the 1928 poem by Joseph Moncure March

"A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's Wild Party was an Off-Broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades, including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Obie awards. Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant show features one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written."

The money we make from this production will go to the BH Care Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services, where the staff will be able to provide a higher quality of life for those seeking help in the shelter.

Featuring the talents of

Queenie: Stephanie Michele Toups

Kate: Kathryn Francisco
Madelaine True: Kat Griffin
Phil D'Armano: Joey Rodriguez
Oscar D'Armano: Esteban Castillo

Putting on a show isn't easy. 

The funds from this GoFundMe will be used to cover production costs like the rights, costumes, props, musicians, rehearsal and performance venues,  etc.. 

A donation of any size would be immensely appreciated. By doing so, you can help us create a living, breathing piece of art while helping local families whose lives have been rewritten by events parallelling what March wrote about in the 1920s. 

We appreciate you taking the time to visit our page. If you don't have the means to donate at this time, that's okay! Even sharing our story with your friends and family can help spread our message.
