Playhouse-Backstage-Bash-Poster-PRINT-674x1024One of the hottest events of the winter is returning to the Fredericton Playhouse stage!

The Rogers Backstage Bash, presented by Fredericton International Airport will be rockin’ on stage February 21, 2015.

For this special fundraising event, we flip everything around – rather than sitting quietly in your seats, we invite guests to join us backstage for an unforgettable evening featuring the Mellotones, an amazing nine-piece, high energy R&B funk band. Performing from a specially constructed stage placed over the seats of the Playhouse, the Mellotones will set the mood for a night of phenomenal entertainment and food, both onstage and backstage!

This is the only fundraising event held by the Fredericton Playhouse, with proceeds supporting our education and outreach programming including our School Field Trips program and the Arts are for Everyone access program.

In 2014, proceeds raised through the Backstage Bash helped us to accomplish some amazing things!

  • Providing 375 complimentary tickets through our Arts are for Everyone program, which provides opportunities to members of our community facing barriers to participation;
  • Presenting five school matinee performances to more than 1,100 students in the Greater Fredericton area;
  • Hosting 21 Experience More! learning opportunities for nearly 1,000 eager individuals.

You’ll also want to get your tickets for the Backstage Bash Raffle for your chance to win one of three fabulous prize packages. One lucky winner will receive the luxurious grand prize – an all-inclusive trip for two to Cuba!

We invite you to join us again at this special event and help us to continue to provide the magic of live performance to the Greater Fredericton community. To purchase your tickets, please contact the box office at 458-8344 or visit www.theplayhouse.ca.
