FUNDRAISER FOR THE NEW EDGECLIFF THEATRE

From CinciPulse - The Pulse of the City

Gloria Swansong is coming back to the silver screen. But someone wants to send her to that big screening room in the sky instead!  Could it be the spurned lover, the jealous stand-in, or does someone have a dark secret?  No more “close-ups” for Miss Swansong! The murder mystery show will be held at The Cabaret at the Below Zero Lounge in the Gateway Quarter (1120 Walnut Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202) on Saturday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m.

 

The event serves as a major fundraiser for New Edgecliff Theatre (NET). Tickets are still available for the one-night only evening, according to Shawn Maus, the theatre’s managing director.

 

The evening will feature The Whodunit? Players joined by friends of New Edgecliff. Guests may dress in their best red carpet attire or simply come dressed for an evening out, while enjoying beverages from the cash bar at the Cabaret.  Maus notes that any donations are tax-deductible.

 

The event is one of four planned fundraisers hosted by NET this year, although this event is more theatrical in nature.

 

“From the minute you walk in, the actors will be performing,” Maus says.

 

He gives a special shout-out to the Below Zero Lounge for hosting the event after it became clear the theatre’s new home space would not be ready in time. “Below Zero and the Whodunit Players graciously stepped forward and opened their space and lent their talents for the event,” Maus says.

 

“It’s a great night to sit down with some cool people, have terrific drinks, see a show that’s happening all around you, and support NET,” Maus notes.

 

All money raised will go to the New Edgecliff’s operating fund, Maus says. That fund provides for main stage productions such as the planned local premiere of David Mamet’s “Race” in April.

 

“It is an investment in our community,” Maus says, “because all these things we do that people love are made possible through support of the operating fund.”

 

“We wanted to do something different.  At NET, we create experiences. This is more than just a fundraiser. This is an evening experience.” Maus says of the murder mystery.
