Bright Star Tony nominee Carmen Cusack will headline Bay Area Musicals’ 2018 gala fundraiser, A Twist of Limelight, May 19 at San Francisco’s Alcazar Theatre.
The evening will include raffles, a silent and a live auction, and the announcement of the company's upcoming season. The second act of the evening will feature the concert from Cusack, whose credits also include Wicked, Les Misérables, and The Phantom of the Opera.
All proceeds will support upcoming productions by Bay Area Musicals.
"I can't believe we are already at our third annual fundraiser,” said Bay Area Musicals Founder and Artistic Director Matthew McCoy. “As a non-profit, it is so important to raise funds so we can continue to grow, flourish, and fulfill our mission. This year we are thrilled to have the support of three official sponsors for the event, over 50 vendors donating to the silent auction, and the generous participation of Tony nominee Carmen Cusack. I had the pleasure of coming across Bright Star while it was in out of town tryouts at the Old Globe and immediately fell in love with Carmen’s voice, energy and talent.”
Tickets range from $45 to $175 and are available at bamsf.org.
