2013-10-04 · By Editor
The Found Theatre is pleased to offer a performance of its hit show, “Here Comes Cinderella!” as a benefit for the Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse, one of Long Beach’s most innovative and socially responsible non-profits. The performance will take place Friday, October 11, at 8 p.m., with 100% of proceeds from ticket and refreshment sales going to the Depot.
The Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse is located in the heart of the East Village Arts District and embodies the notions of community, care for the environment, and the importance of art in people’s lives. Run by community activists Lisa Hernandez and her daughter Yoshino Jasso, the Depot’s mission is to promote the process of taking used or recycled materials and turning them into art.
“The Depot is a huge friend to artists, teachers, and theatres like ours, which operate on a shoestring,” said Virginia DeMoss, executive director of The Found Theatre. “Whatever we may need, in terms of materials for building props and creating shows, the Depot either has it or will put out a call for it. We get to reuse materials, which has always been one of our key operating principles, while saving money. They are doing a huge service to the community, and this fundraising evening is just one small way to say thank you.”
Please join us for “Here Comes Cinderella!,” a funny, fractured fairytale that’s fun for all ages. The Found Theatre is located at 599 Long Beach Blvd. in downtown Long Beach. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12. Reservations can be made at 562/433-3363 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
