Make-A-Wish Connecticut benefit features local talent
Broadway Wishes, a benefit for Make-A-Wish Connecticut will be performed on Saturday Feb. 27, at 1 p.m., at the Fairfield Theatre Company, 70 Sanford Street, Fairfield. The mission of Make-A-Wish is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Directed by Michael Patrick Dominick, Broadway Wishes will feature regional talent hailing from Fairfield and all throughout the New England region, including featured talent from Connecticut Wish Kids. Guests will enjoy hits from favorites such as Les Miserables, Grease!, Chicago, Rent, Wicked and many more.
“We are so proud to not only have such great talent from the region, as well as incredible musicians from Fairfield University and beyond, but we’ll be featuring some very gifted Wish Kids who have experienced the power of a wish firsthand, and they will share their experiences through their performances,” said Michael Dominick, Community & Media Relations Manager for Make-A-Wish Connecticut and director of the review. “It’s not just a show — it’s an overall Make-A-Wish experience that you do not want to miss,” he added.
Come out and support Connecticut Wish Kids for an afternoon of Broadway classics, and help make wishes come true for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. To purchase tickets, visit fairfieldtheatre.org/shows/broadway-wishes.
