"Seize the Stage: A Musical Revue Benefit for Epilepsy" is back for its ninth year, but in a different formonline, via Zoomand the event's fundraising focus will be the theatrical community.
"Seize the Stage" ( STS ) will take place Thursday, May 21, at 7 p.m.
The Stage family is built of artists and performers, so this year's event will raise funds for The Actors Fund. Over the past eight years, the Seize the Stage concerts have raised nearly $50,000 to help send children to Camp Blackhawk, a program within the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago.
"Seize the Stage" is set to feature performers from Chicago, New York and California. In addition to STS alumni performing, there will be performers such as Eric Peterson ( Escape to Margaritaville; School of Rock ), Noah Weisberg ( Legally Blonde; South Pacific ), Veronica J. Kuehn ( MAMMA MIA!-Broadway; Avenue Q ), Zander Meisner ( Annie; Cats-national tour ), Matthew Janisse ( Something Rotten!-second national tour ) and Carolyn Anne Miller ( Frozen-Disney Cruise Line ).
The event will be free to attend, but a suggested $10 donation will be appreciated. Donation information will be broadcast during the live event.
