2nd Annual Night At The Rep

It is that wonderful time of year again. 

Each year we host our annual Night at The Rep fundraiser which includes a play, heavy hors d'oeuvres by Flavour's, and a silent auction.  This years event with take place on October 21st at 6 PM.  Proceeds will allow us to provide scholarships for families who have children with Down syndrome.  These scholarships will help pay for a special neurodevelopemental program.

This years play will be Wait Until DarkJust in time for Halloween, a masterfully constructed thrill will take Rep audiences from one moment of suspense to another toward an electrifying, breath-stopping finale in Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott.

Knott's play inspired the 1967 Hollywood film of the same name, with both the play and film garnering multiple Tony, Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for many of the actors involved-including film's star, Audrey Hepburn.  The film also ranked tenth on Bravo's "100 Scariest Moments."

A sinister con man and two ex-convicts are about to meet their match.  They have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his wife, Susy.  With murder afoot, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, as Susy discovers the only way to play fair is to play by her rules.

This year we have an honorary scholarship in the name of Arabella Mash.  Arabella earned her angel wings in early January of this year.  Her short life touched so many people and her spirit stays strong in our community.
