Musical theatre enthusiasts will have the opportunity to enjoy their favorite tunes while supporting local breast cancer patients during the upcoming production of “A Night of Broadway,” which will take place at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts
The show is presented by Dr. Vincent Scarpinato, Linda Tieman, and the Portsmouth West Vocal Department, in association with the SOMC Development Foundation, Shawnee State University, Bob and Debbie Gambill, and the SOMC Service Guild.
The program will feature vocal selections from both alumni and current Portsmouth West High School students. All proceeds earned will benefit the SOMC Breast Cancer Compassion Fund.
“A Night of Broadway is a musical celebration that will bring the entire community together to invigorate hope and help us defeat this terrible disease that affects so many lives,” Dr. Scarpinato, senior medical director of Surgical Services at SOMC, said. “While there are often many resources for breast cancer patients, there are also many patients who need help with critical needs; this production will raise money for those people.”
Three ticket types are available for the evening, including $50 VIP Tickets, $25 Patron Tickets, and $12 Regular Tickets. The purchase of a VIP ticket will include admission to a champagne reception following the event. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
“Over the years, we have produced many shows to benefit our local breast cancer patients, and each program brings a new level of appreciation for our community,” Dr. Scarpinato said. “I’m honored to help with these shows, and even more humbled to see the response they receive. They assist so many and we hope this performance will be just as successful as those of the past.”
