Slipstream will hold fundraiser, season preview December 16

Show Announcement December 07, 2017

FERNDALE—Four years ago, Slipstream Theatre Initiative came into view with a production of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Now, after 24 full scale productions, the company emerges for its fourth season. Pulling a new card from its deck, the young company ventures into original devised works, classics, and a musical…or two.

On Saturday, December 16th, the company will host a fundraiser and season preview at their theater at 460 Hilton in Ferndale. There is no admission charge and there will be food and drink a-plenty. Enjoy the night as Luna Alexander and Dan Johnson take the stage with a Tale from the Mitten. Say hello to the newest company members Torri Lynne Frances and Manning Goldman, as they show us their Othello and RuPaul, respectively. Give a hand to Mandy Logsdon as she presents a piece from her directorial debut of Tartuffe. Watch company “heart-throb” Steve Xander Carson start the show with a musical number. Be ready to melt into Victoria Rose Weatherspoon’s silky smooth jazz stylings as she performs a number from Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.

Join Slipstream in celebrating not just their new season, but the enormous amount of talent and art that the theatre community has to offer. Email InsideTheSlipstream@gmail.com for more information.
