Pasadena Playhouse artistic director Sheldon Epps said in a statement, "The tremendous artists who live and work in the Los Angeles area have always been incredibly generous with their time and talents, and so willing to offer their gifts in support of those in need. That is exactly the case with this benefit. I am grateful to them, and so pleased that the Playhouse is able to participate by hosting this event in our theatre. I know that this very gifted group of performers will create an exciting evening of song and dance in support of a vitally important and urgent cause."
The evening, which is being produced by Patty Onagan and Ronn Gosswick, will be directed by Iona Morris, with Gerald Sternbach serving as musical director. A raffle will precede the concert.
