Summer Happenings at The Emerald Coast Theatre
Marvelous Manhattan Comedy, June 15th
The Emerald Coast Theatre Co will be transformed into a “Marvelous Manhattan Comedy Club” for one night only On June 15th, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Manhattan Comedy Club, an epic comedy theatre event like no other on the Emerald Coast, is a Benefit for Emerald Coast Theatre Co. Think 1950’s era, where martinis flow in New York City’s underground comedy club scene. A swanky upper west side cocktail party meets a gritty, hilarious comedy club. This is the one night out that you’ve been waiting for! Your ticket includes: Big time laughs from national stand up comedians, 1950’s all girl musical review and variety show, Swillin’ Classic Cocktails and Nostalgic Nosh, wine and bourbon tastings, chef’s prepared nibbles and bites, Chocolate Fondue and Bubbly and a whole lot of fun! Vintage decor inspired by EC’s Best Interior Designer Todd Reeves. A cash bar will also be available for your beverage purchases. Three great acts. One Night Only. Cocktail hour by the Village Belles, opening performer, Heather Tolley-Bauer, followed by headliner Lace Larrabee. But the one-night only affair promises more, including the opportunity to purchase all or part of a collection of Maneater Winery “Marilyn” wines. Local Beau Esprit Framing business owners, Stacey and Bill Barrett, have generously donated the recently appraised 77 bottle $12,000 collection of Merlots, Cabernets and sparkling Cuvee Carneros featuring the 1950’s star on the label, to help raise money for Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC).
