Beehive Pancake Breakfast Saturday
SoVaNow.com / April 03, 2014Halifax County Little Theatre will sponsor a Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s this Saturday, April 5, from 8-10 a.m. The proceeds from the breakfast will help with expenses for their upcoming musical, BEEHIVE: The 60’s Rock Musical, which opens April 25.
For just $8, the hungry patron will get all the pancakes he or she can eat, as well as a serving of sausage and eggs and a beverage. Of the eight dollar ticket charge, six of those dollars will go to help out BEEHIVE.
Musicals are very expensive to produce. In addition to royalties and rental of the rights to do the show, which runs in the thousands of dollars, there are the expenses of lumber for the set, sound and microphone rental, costumes, programs, posters, makeup, ticketing charges, paint, and more.
There are over 100 costumes for this show alone for a large cast of Divas, Do-wops, and Dancers. BEEHIVE is truly a musical experience that everyone should make plans to see, but it takes money to get it ready for the stage.
Come help out the BEEHIVERS by getting a ticket for this Saturday’s breakfast. It’s yummy for the “innards” and rewarding to help out a good cause. Buy a ticket for a friend and make someone else happy too.
BEEHIVE runs April 25 through May 4, and tickets are currently on sale at The Prizery or by calling 572-8339. If you want pancake tickets, contact any cast or Little Theatre board member or call 579-5041 to speak to Little Theatre president Sandy Slayton.
