The concert, scheduled to begin at 8 PM,  also features performances from Morgan James (The Addams Family, Wonderland), Brian Ogilvie (Mary Poppins), Laura Beth Wells (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark), Jordan Brennan, Lauren Brownstein, Nicole Calabrese, David Campbell, Zachary Clause, Jennifer Harrison, Jennifer Lameo, Adam Levinskas, Jill Palena, Louis Palena, Jihyen Park, Jenny Pilong, Marrick Smith and Dana Winkle. David Jenkins will musically direct and Jason Howland (Little Women) will accompany James for the Act I finale.

One Night Only will feature the world premiere of a new public service announcement focusing on the importance of regional theatre in America. The PSA spotlights Tony Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon) and Tony Award nominees Adam Pascal (Rent) and Gavin Creel (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Hair).

The newly formed organization's goal is to present quality theatrical productions for the region as well as establish a permanent venue to house ongoing performances since the historic Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA, was recently shut down.

"This region deserves a professional theatre company and more importantly, they want one," said the Collective's artistic director Richard Amelius in a statement. "We stand united in the effort to give it to them, inside the Bucks County Playhouse or otherwise."

Broadway show cards autographed by the casts of Anything Goes, The Book of Mormon, Catch Me If You Can, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Motherfu**er with the Hat, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Sister Act, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark and War Horse will also be auctioned off throughout the evening with all proceeds going toward the Collective's future goal of securing a performance space. The Stephen J. Buck Memorial Theater is located in the New Hope-Solebury High School at 180 W. Bridge Street in New Hope, PA. For reservations, email info@delawarerivertheatrecollective.org.
