CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — SALT Performing Arts will introduce a new fundraising campaign, PASS THE SALT, during its April 23rd COOPED UP CABARET that will feature media stars from literature, TV, film and Broadway.
As the quarantine continues, and people are feeling more and more bottled up, SALT Performing Arts continues to make the most of this unprecedented time of uncertainty, challenging news, and stories of small business struggles, with its COOPED UP CABARET.
Since March 16, each Thursday night, SALT has hosted a “live” premiere of 10 or more SALT performers singing a song that has been chosen earlier in the week via a poll that SALT followers, friends and family can vote on.
Via the premiere, all viewers can comment on the YouTube-based Cabaret, thus creating an interactive community discussion. During Week 3, the Cabaret featured Phoenixville Mayor Urscheler and was picked up in local media including Fox 29 news.
“As a nonprofit theatre, the longer the quarantine lasts, the more important it is to keep our community connected and spirits raised — not to mention trying to stay afloat financially,” comments Lauren McComas, President and Artistic Director of SALT Performing Arts.
“We are having to be quite creative and think outside of the box to figure out feasible ways to keep our community entertained and uplifted. As we continue to rock that out, we’ll be launching our exciting new fundraising campaign, PASS THE SALT, during this Thursday’s Cabaret, and we are beyond thrilled that we have some big media stars joining our SALT family to help us out!”
The stars include Broadway performers from shows such as Beetle Juice, Bandstand, Frozen, Waitress, Les Misérables, Wicked, Newsies, from the TV show The Wire, Law and Order, film Madame Butterfly as well as a top children’s author.
In addition to the celebrity performers, this week’s Cabaret will have two fun features. The first is the depute of “Quarantine,” a parody of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” written and performed by SALT’s Mamma Mia 2019 cast & crew. The second is an uplifting video collaboration showcasing and memorializing SALT’s community via pictures and videos from SALT’s six years of existence.
