No it's not a promotion to announce the re-release of a certain flop film musical, but on Tuesday, Feb. 10, a band of old-fashioned "newsies" in knickers and caps will pass out special edition newspapers downtown to promote A Contemporary Theatre's splashy benefit, "A Taste of ACT," which will be held Saturday Feb. 28, from 8 PM to midnight.

No it's not a promotion to announce the re-release of a certain flop film musical, but on Tuesday, Feb. 10, a band of old-fashioned "newsies" in knickers and caps will pass out special edition newspapers downtown to promote A Contemporary Theatre's splashy benefit, "A Taste of ACT," which will be held Saturday Feb. 28, from 8 PM to midnight. The event, to be held at the theatre's new downtown facility, 700 Union at Kreielsheimer Place, follows a '20s and '30s theme, and features musical acts, a cabaret, a casino, silent films, bathtub gin, and "special appearances" by impersonators of stars from Hollywood's golden Age, such as Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, and Douglas Fairbanks.

Proceeds from the event will benefit ACT's artistic initiative. Tickets, priced at $50 are available through the ACT box office at (206) 292-7676.
