members wanted to put together a fundraiser that would not only get the word out about the Playhouse, but help the community get in a festive spirit.
Thus, at the Arcadia Grille was born.
"How much more festive can you get than Christmas?" said Lizabeth Falcon, a North Canton Playhouse volunteer and member of the public relations committee.
The fundraiser takes place from 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m. today at the Arcadia Grille, 321 Court Ave. NW, Canton. Tickets for a pasta dinner cost $10 and can be purchased from any Playhouse board member or by calling the office at 330-494-1613. Tickets are also available at the door.
Diners can even get their dinner to go and also bid on gift baskets and enter a 50/50 raffle drawing. Guest bartender Scott Warner, who's been active in local theater, will also be on hand serving drinks.
"I think there's something for everyone," Falcon said.
Falcon, who's worked alongside Gale Spatafore to organize the event, said the money raised will go toward a new fund for miscellaneous needs and outreach. That way, the money isn't coming from the Playhouse's general fund.
She said the theater always is looking for new members to help out in any capacity.
"There are opportunities for anyone and everyone who has any desire to work in any aspect of the theater," Falcon said. "And it’s not just on the stage. All the little things you don’t see is what brings it all together."
