The Fifth Anniversary James Tolin Memorial Fund AIDS Benefit is finally here. At 7:00 PM, the guests will begin to arrive to walk the Red Carpet at the Kelsey Theatre on the campus of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, NJ.
Then, at 8:00 PM, the curtain rises on our production of Charles Busch's hilarious play, Psycho Beach Party, a madcap spoof of all things Hollywood in the early 60's including B-grade surf movies; psychological thrillers; low-budget potboilers and drive-in horror movies. Director Brian Bara has assembled an amazing cast of performers from all over NJ & PA, including Melanie Britten; Josiah DeAndrea; Doug Edelson; Adam Fitting; Damian Gaeta; Tina Henderson; Aubrey Malloy; Josh Minton; Nicole Patrick and Mark Violi for this wild and sexy romp down Baby-Boomers' Memory Lane. *
Before the show and at intermission, you will have a chance to bid on a terrific assortment of items donated by local and national businesses and celebrities such as Carol Burnett, Robin Williams and the cast of "Desperate Housewives." Enjoy a luau reception along with the mellow surf sounds of Chuck Easter and New Atlantis. And stick around right after tonight's show for an extra special treat.
Tomorrow, the curtain rises again at 8:00 PM; the Silent Auction will contuinue and we'll have more delicious luau fare, just with a liittle less pomp and circumstance.
Tax-deductible tickets are still available by calling the Kelsey box office at 609-570-3333, online at either of the sites linked to the right, or at the door starting at 7:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
