Act3 playhouse will collect donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy during the run of “Legally Blonde.”
The theater company, located behind Sandy Springs Plaza has teamed up with a high school Thespian Society Troupe in Toms River, N.J. to collect funds to help residents of the hardest hit areas of the New Jersey Shore communities. The troupe, Thespian Troupe #7455 at Toms River North High School, is an acting honor society devoted to the arts and community service. They have established “OPERATION STORM TROUPErs” to collect funds and supplies for the many displaced residents of the area.
Patti Folio, Act3 director of public relations is a New Jersey native with family at the shore. “I felt so helpless being here and not being able to help,” she said. “When I found this effort by a group of student actors, I just felt it was the perfect fit for us. Theater people have big hearts and many of us have ties to the New Jersey/New York area. We hope our staff, families and patrons will be generous.”
“Legally Blonde” debuts Friday and continues through the weekend, and also Nov. 16 and 17. Visit www.act3productions.org for details and tickets to the show.
