For this week only, you can catch scenes from some of your favorite Staples High School productions and support Save the Children, a Westport-based international nonprofit, all at once.
"Ages and Stages," an original Staples Players production opening Thursday night, is a fully staged musical revue that will feature a selection of scenes from some of the theater's greatest plays. The closing performance Saturday at 8 p.m. will double as a benefit for Save the Children. All proceeds of that performance will be donated to the nonprofit's Southern U.S. Tornado Children in Emergency Fund.
We realized that this was an opportunity to help with a relief effort that was truly important, said senior Max Samuels, president of Staples Players, in a prepared statement. It will be an excellent way for the Westport community to help out with all that has recently happened while simultaneously enjoying an unforgettable night of entertainment.
If you can't attend the Saturday night performance but would like to give to the fund, donations of any amount can be made with the purchase of a ticket for another performance.
We are very much looking forward to this special performance and we hope people will come out and support, us, Max said.
"Ages and Stages" will be performed in the Staples black box theater, located in the music/theater wing near the field house/cafeteria entrances. Performances will be held Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday at 4 and 8 p.m. Tickets for the Saturday night performance are $15 for students and $25 for adults. For all other performances, student tickets are $10 and adult tickets are $15.
To get your tickets, visit Staples Players online . If online sales show a performance is sold out, a limited number of seats may still be available at the door. Those tickets may be purchased at the box office waitlist up to 30 minutes before each performance.
