WaterTower Pride mixer at S4 postponed

WaterTower Theatre’s launch party for its upcoming Pride series of plays, set for Thursday at Station 4, has been postponed “due to circumstances beyond our control,” according to Greg Patterson, the director of development and marketing for the company. The event will be rescheduled for September and will include live performances of scenes fromĀ the upcoming musicalĀ Spring Awakening.

The Addison theater has a reputation for high-quality productions, often with serious themes (including gay issues) in regional premieres like Take Me Out and the upcoming August: Osage County, as well as the Out of the Loop Fringe Festival every spring.

WaterTower in need of silent auction gifts

WaterTower Theatre’s gala fundraiser is coming up, and the gay-run organization is on the hunt for donated items that can be offered up for their silent auction. Maybe you’re a massage therapist who wants to give a free deep tissue, or a stylist who wants to donate a coif, or you just have more frequent flier miles than you know what to do with. It’s all good, and more. (Gift cards, spa certificates, restaurant vouchers, crystalwear … you know you have something.)

If you have anything or want to know how to help, contact Greg Patterson at GPatterson@WaterTowerTheatre.org, or call 972-450-6227.
