  • Jazz Quartet
  • Hearty hors d’oeuvres catered by Hilltop Orchards
  • Wine made on site by Furnace Winery

Guests will arrive to the jazz stylings of  Rich Vinette Quintet. Local luminaries will surprise and delight by being “miscast” in monologues or songs they would never be cast in but always dreamed of playing. Featuring Josh Aaron McCabe, Kelly Galvin, Kim Stauffer, and Ryan Winkles. Festivities continue with the rambling music of master guitarist Don McGory and Miles Lally on bass by the campfire.

Hosted by Hilltop Orchards in Richmond, MA, the evening’s guests will be the first to learn about this year’s beneficiary plus meet the cast and see a sneak peak from WAM Theatre’s fall main-stage production, HOLY LAUGHTER.

“This benefit, with it’s myriad of delights, is guaranteed fun for all! I can’t wait!”
— Kristen van Ginhoven, Founder and Artistic Director of WAM Theatre
