Stepinac’s drama guru Frank Portanova dropped me a line to tell me about Friday night’s interesting fund-raiser for his club’s upcoming production of “Singin’ in the Rain.”
They’re calling it “Scarlett: Passion Behind the Fashion,” and it features Stepinac’s actors Ã¢â‚¬â€ and those actresses who come from other schools, one supposes Ã¢â‚¬â€ modeling clothes from the county’s top stores. It sounds a bit commercial to me, but if it helps Stepinac in its quest to set the bar ever higher, I suppose it’s not a bad thing.
Writes Frank: “Sponsors include: STEVE MADDEN, HOT TOPIC, SPORTS AUTHORITY, MACY’S, CACHE, NEW ERA, TOO CUTE, and MEN’S WAREHOUSE. MAC Cosmetics and LA BOTTEGA of White Plains will sponsor hair and make-up for all the models. Coupons during the evening will be distributed for prom dresses and tuxedos from the various stores.Ã¢â‚¬?
The event is Friday, February 29th at 7:30pm at Stepinac High School, 950 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY. Admisison is $10.
For the record, I’m not going to prom this year.
