Curtain Call Performing Arts (CCPA) is gearing up for a benefit Classic and Hot Rod Car Show sponsored by the Hayward/Castro Valley Moose Lodge, on Sunday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The benefit car show will raise funds for CCPA’s upcoming production of “A Christmas Carol, the Musical” and their “Family Day at the Theatre” program where students in grades K-8 pay $1 to see a show.
“With our focus on youth in arts programs, educational programs, and our desire to promote the arts to youth in our community, we work hard to keep the ‘Family Day at the Theatre’ program thriving,” said Andrea Gorham, CCPA Co-Founder and Artistic Director. “Through community support we can continue to make the arts, and live theatre accessible to everyone.”
With a program unlike any in the Bay Area, and affordable pricing for all regular shows, CCPA has a track record of making the arts accessible to more households. Family Day at the Theatre has touched hundreds of families and children in the greater East Bay.
Classic and hot rod car and truck owners from the greater Bay Area will converge on the to showcase their beauties, with awards given to the best cars and trucks.
Attendees can dress in their favorite 1950s attire and enjoy live music, food, raffle prizes, and an old fashion cake walk.
Breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase, with a Chili cook-off taking place at 3 p.m. Registration for “Greased Lightning” is $15 and includes a show t-shirt and gift bag.
For more information and to register a vehicle in the “Greased Lightning” Benefit Car Show, visit www.curtaincallperformingarts.org or call 510-909-9516.
The Vision of CCPA is to ensure that performance-based arts are accessible to everyone who desires to participate or attend performances by keeping both ticket prices low and class/workshop tuition affordable.
