July 17th benefit unites one fabulous performer with two fabulous organizations
Connie Champagne brings her astonishing vocal talents to the music made famous by the great Dusty Springfield, a perfect pairing of singer and songs. The July 17th performance is a benefit for the Camp Sister Spirit Folk School in southern Mississippi, that we've written about before on this blog, and Shanti LIFELINES Breast Cancer Program. Tickets for this performance only are pay-what-you-wish, but dig deep for these two wonderful organizations.
Audiences who only know the effervescent Ms. Champagne as an interpreter of Judy Garland will discover a new brand of bubbly in Brand New Me-Connie Champagne sings the Dusty Springfield Songbook. The show is directed by F. Allen Sawyer with musical direction by Joe Collins.
The show is at the New Conservatory Theatre Center, 25 Van Ness Ave., Lower Lobby, San Francisco. Pay-what-you-wish tickets are only available at the New Conservatory box office one hour prior to the performance on a first-come first-served basis.
