Entitled Broadway Chance Style: Up Close & Personal, the theatre's 10th anniversary benefit concert will be presented Sept. 27 at Santa Ana's OC Pavilion. Paul Canaan, who is a judge on the MTV reality series "The Search for the Next Elle Woods," will host the evening, which will boast performances by Legally Blonde's Laura Bell Bundy, Xanadu's Kerry Butler, Rent's Eden Espinosa, The Phantom of the Opera's Stephen Tewksbury, Wicked's Kristoffer Cusick and The Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Bart Shatto.
In a statement Chance managing director Casey Long said, "For our 10th Anniversary, we wanted to make our annual fundraiser something really special. It's an amazing lineup of talent in a very intimate atmosphere. People are traveling from across the country to be there, some as far away as New York." Proceeds from the benefit will support Chance's artistic programming, education programs and outreach initiatives.
The evening will also include silent and live auctions, a raffle drawing and the announcement of The Chance Theater's 2009 Season.
