MORGANTOWN — The New West Virginia Public Theatre (WVPT), as it has been rebranded, is on firm financial ground and hosting a fundraiser this week to support a scaled-down 2016 summer season.
The “Seis de Mayo” fundraising event will be at 6 p.m. Friday, May 6, at Lakeview Golf Resort and Spa. It will include a Mexican-themed dinner, cash bar, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, live performance and DJ. Tickets to the event are $100 per couple.
Last year, the theater had to cancel its 21st annual holiday show and let go of its paid staff for financial reasons. With a new group of board members, a five-year plan and a new partnership, WVPT is ready to break a leg.
To buy tickets to Friday’s event or the upcoming summer shows, call WVPT at 304-381-2382.
