Playhouse on Park supporters gathered on May 14, 2022 for Playhouse’s annual fundraiser, AGAIN! This year’s theme was IMAGINE IF… Can you imagine a world without theater and theater education? Imagine if…all proceeds from this unique and entertaining evening went towards maintaining professional theater on the Playhouse on Park stage and providing excellent theatrical arts programs through the Playhouse Theater Academy to children and young people for years to come! The event took place at the Clerestory Ballroom (Hilliard Mills) in Manchester, CT. A net total of $70,000 was raised during this fantastic evening.
