Broadway Loves Casita Linda Musical Extravaganza!

The Broadway Loves Casita Linda benefit concert is only one week away and the excitement is building!

Our host committee met this morning to create a schedule for the various tasks that have to be assigned -- selling tickets this week in El Jardin, handing out programs at the concert, ushering people to their seats, selling Casita Linda t-shirts and taking pledges.

The funds raised by this event will go toward constructing more Casita Linda adobe houses for families in need. After each night's performance, volunteers can attend the rooftop cast party near the theater!

Several Broadway stage performers have generously donated their time to help Casita Linda and include Colin Cunliffe, Ben Cameron, Stephanie Umoh, Austin Lesch and Kathryn Mowat Murphy.

Among them the cast boasts credits in such major productions as: “Cry Baby,” “Wicked,” Elton John and Tim Rice’s ”Aida,” “Footloose,” “High Society,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Fosse,” “Pal Joey,” “Altar Boyz,” and “Sweet Charity.” The group has also enjoyed roles in the national touring companies of: “Sweet Charity,” “Fame,” “State Fair,” "Tommy,” “The Boyfriend,” “Chicago,” “A Chorus Line,” and “Cats.”
