Throughout the summer and fall, we have some exciting events being created by our community partners, at which we hope to see your smiling faces!
August 19: #RepYourPride with San Diego Repertory Theatre
On August 19, 2017, join us for the 2:00 matinee performance of the Broadway hit musical, EVITA! The San Diego Repertory Theatre will be donating 15% of all single ticket sales for that performance to the Sunshine Brooks HIV/AIDS Fund at San Diego Human Dignity Foundation. Established through a bequest from Price Club (now Costco) founding member, Hattie “Sunshine Brooks”, this multi-million dollar legacy gift has benefited HIV/AIDS charities in San Diego County for over a decade.
Spearheading this partnership, is The Rep’s Community Partnerships Ambassador , Vaughn Rainwater, who remarked, “REP Your Pride has given me the unique opportunity to meet some awesome people and connect San Diego REP audiences with many wonderful organizations, like San Diego Human Dignity Foundation, working so hard to impact and benefit San Diego’s diverse and ever-expanding LGBTQ community”.
In line with their mission to bring theatre excellence to all populations, including youth, The Rep is excited to produce EVITA in association with the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts.
About EVITA: Eva Peron’s ambition and charisma made her a starlet at 22, the President’s mistress at 24, First Lady Eva at 27 and dead at 33. Saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military, she left a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world. Eva’s unforgettable story is told in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. With more than 20 major awards to its credit, EVITA features a Latin rock/jazz/pop score with some of the most beloved songs in musical theatre history, including “On this Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.” Lyrics by Tim Rice and Music by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Join us after the show in our lower lobby for a free engagement event, where you can have a glass of wine mingle with cast and crew, and meet SDHDF board and staff members!
Tickets may be found at this link, and please be sure to enter the promo code “BROOKS” at the upper right hand area of the screen, at the time of purchase. See you on August 19, for an unforgettable day at The Rep!
