Broadway Legends Fashion Show Held October 27

 Friends and supporters of New Brunswick’s George Street Playhouse will be donning costumes from legendary Broadway shows in a special event, Sunday, October 27 at 5 pm.  The “Broadway Legends Fashion Show” will feature a number of local celebrities sporting the extraordinary, eye-popping costumes from hit shows such as Evita, Hairspray, Mame, Man of La Mancha, Camelot, Phantom of the Opera and others.   It’s costume cacophony as this unique event marks a rare opportunity for audiences to see these costumes up close and personal –all on the same stage!

In addition to the costumes on the runway, patrons attending the show have the opportunity to purchase auction bids for evening bags promoting “a night on the town,” decked out with theatre tickets, restaurant gift cards and hotel stays – and one lucky winner will take home a diamond cocktail ring, valued at $1500.

The Broadway Legends Fashion Show and the evening bag raffle will take place Sunday, October 27 at The Heldrich, located on Livingston Avenue, directly across the street from George Street Playhouse.  Tickets for this benefit event are $100 for adults, $50 for youth aged 11-17.  Tickets are available through the George Street Playhouse Box Office, 732-246-7717 or via the GSP website.  All proceeds of the event will benefit George Street Playhouse’s mainstage and educational programming.
