Get ready for a magical journey back in time with the Bell Aliant Backstage Bash. On March 21, you’re invited to boogie the night away to the sweet sounds of Motown at the Fredericton Playhouse.

The Bash will transport guests to a time when new sounds were born – the Sounds of Motown. From his Detroit hit factory, Motown founder Berry Gordy gave the world music they couldn’t get enough of – “joyous, sad, romantic, mad, groovin’, movin’ music.”

This fundraising event stands out thanks to its unique setting. The amazing 13-piece Sounds of Motown band will perform from a specially constructed stage that sits over the seats in the theatre, while guests enjoy an evening of funky entertainment and food – both onstage and backstage!

Whether you choose to dance the night away, or mix and mingle to the hits made famous by legends like the Temptations, Marvin Gaye and the Four Tops, it’s sure to be an unforgettable evening.

The Backstage Bash also supports an important cause. As the only annual fundraising event for the Fredericton Playhouse, this party helps raise funds for outreach and education programming, including Arts are for Everyone and our School Program.

During the Bash, the Playhouse will also announce the winners of the Coast to Coast Raffle. This raffle features an incredible $16,000 in prizes, including the grand prize of a trip for two to the spectacular Langara Fishing Lodge in British Columbia’s Haida Gwaii – Queen Charlotte Islands.

Raffle tickets are $20 each, or three for $50, and are available in advance at the Playhouse box office. With only 750 raffle tickets available, get them now before they run out! Winners aren’t required to be present at the Bash to claim their prize.

Tickets for the Backstage Bash are $75 and available at www.theplayhouse.ca/backstage-bash, by phone at 1-866-884-5800, or at the Playhouse box office. Split-tax receipts will be provided. For more information on the Bell Aliant Backstage Bash or the Coast to Coast Raffle, please contact Dean Brokop at 506-459-6207 or dean@theplayhouse.ca.
