On Saturday, April 14, at the Crown City Theatre, a little bit of cabaret, theater, music, dance, and a lot of magic will come to Los Angeles for a spring fundraiser/benefit for the Three Roses Players and One in the Cannes film production company.
Maggie Grant, Artistic Director, promises that the evening should be a “huge night of entertainment” showcasing the talents of singers, tap dancers, and also a fine wine-tasting extravaganza. The first three people to email Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org will get a buy-one-get-one-free admission to the fundraiser, for a savings of $23. If one cannot attend, silent bid auctions can still be posted at email@example.com.
Most recently Maggie and the Three Roses Players collaborated with Carl Reiner, deemed the “dean of comedy,” directing two staged readings of his new full-length play Shakespeare Was Wrong, and Maggie is rising to the occasion. The company is very supportive of writers and actors, screen and stage, with a goal of encouraging their growth and supporting their craft.
Maggie Grant’s goal is to promote and showcase up and coming playwrights and screenwriters, and the funds raised will help the Roses to continue thriving and blooming. One such example is a terrific writer, Garry Kruger, of an intense drama, Brotherhood, winner of the Writer Speaks Winner’s Circle, for which she directed and produced the short film. In May, she will coproduce LOVE STRUCK, a one-act festival starring Barbara Bain, Peter Van Norden, Nick Ullet, and Robert Miano. The festival is an opportunity for new talent to showcase their art, as a stepping stone to Broadway or Lincoln Center. All involved in this production company, supporting film and theater, sing its praises and the influence on their lives and careers.
Feed the Roses Spring Fund-raiser is on Saturday, April 14, at 7—11 p.m. at Crown City Theatre, St Matthews Church, located at 11031 Camarillo St. in North Hollywood 91602. For tickets and information on all the acts, visit www.3rosesp.com.
