HUNTERSVILLE – Theater lovers relived popular Davidson Community Players performances at Encore, a musical revue benefit, March 15 at Northstone Country Club.
Actors from past shows attended the event, including Lori Tate from “Hello Dolly,” Kristian Andrewson from “Crazy for You,” Lisa Smith from “Ragtime” and Kevin Roberge from “Music Man.”
“We were thrilled at the outpouring of support for our first-time fundraising gala,” Executive Director Matt Merrell said. “The event raised some sorely needed funds to help underwrite our ongoing extensive programs for youth and adults.”
Guests paid $60 to get into the cocktail gala. They bid on auction items, bought raffle tickets and sampled food from 131 Main and Nothing Bundt Cakes.
A special committee coordinated the event. Members include Barbara Barvoets, Regan Brown, MJ Daya, Tammy Dyckman, Jenean Fornges, BJ Havens, Matt Merrell and Lori Tate.
“The players have enriched this community through theater for 49 years and through that time, built a great fellowship amongst theater-lovers.” said Brown, DCP’s board chair. “It is our hope that events such as Encore will allow us to continue to do so.”
