PARRSBORO: Ship's Company Theatre remains a hub of activity throughout winter months in addition to their busy summer schedule.
"Fundraisers are a necessary and constant aspect of Ship's Company even throughout the winter. We have three major events in the winter months that keep us busy in the winter," Rena Kossatz Ship's Company Publicist said.
The first major fundraiser Ship's Company has offered to the public is their Winter Warm-Up Cocktail Party which has become tradition at the Ship and will be held on February 16 at St. Brigid's Catholic Church Hall.
Kossatz said the evening offers the opportunity to mix and mingle with friends, nibble on hors d'oeuvres while enjoying musical entertainment with Peter Hoar as auctioneer for the annual Mystery Gift Auction.
"We like to give the public the best in entertainment, the cocktail party is a fun evening that many look forward to every year," Kossatz said.
The Publicist said when it comes to planning events at the Ship they (staff) like to offer a broad range of activities that keep the public wanting to participate in.
In addition to hosting the annual cocktail party Ship's Company will be hosting Irish Pub Night on March 15, where a lucky person will win a trip to Florida in a reverse order draw.
"With drawing a winner in a reverse order it builds excitement and anticipation throughout the evening," Kossatz said.
For purchasing one ticket for $15 or two tickets for $20 you could win a seven day vacation getaway for two that includes airfare to Cypress Point Resort at Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Florida where you can take in the many sights and attractions, take a dip in the warm waters or sit back and simply enjoy time spent relaxing.
Irish Pub Night will also consist of live traditional music with the Publicans who will once again entertain during the festive evening.
On March 27th, Ship's Company is offering an opportunity to visit the Halifax Club for an evening of exquisite dining and extraordinary offerings by some of Nova Scotia's finest performance artists.
"The Halifax Club is full of historic nostalgia being formed in the vicinity of 1865 and a place where Sir Charles Tupper had frequented," Kossatz said.
During the course of the evening at the Halifax Club there will be a silent auction, highlighting an array of items presented for viewing and bidding.
"The evening will provide occasion for a warm gathering of friends, patrons and supporters - past, present and future," the Publicist said.
Also during the evening at the Halifax Club Ship's Company will be offering a sneak peek at the upcoming 2008 season.
