We recently added a theatrical touch to the annual benefit for Arena Stage in Crystal City. In the photo above, our Wizard of Oz characters are posing with Mitchell Schear, Charles E. Smith President, and Angie Fox, Crystal City Business Improvement District President. The fund raiser was held to benefit Arena's enrichment programs that serve 20,000 kids!
As most of you know, Arena stage is now mounting productions in two venues, one in Crystal City, at 1800 South Bell Street, Arlington, VA 22202, and at the Lincoln Theater, 1215 U Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009. These wonderful stages are being used while the new Mead Center for American Theater is being constructed on Arena's site at 6th and Maine St., SW.
At Cast of Thousands we all share a love of the stage, so we were more than happy to take part in this wonderful fundraiser for such a worthy cause: bringing the joy of theater to young people in the DC area.
