It’s Hard to Believe That We’re 10 Years Old!
Come see the revitalized Downtown Tucson! It’s bright, it’s busy and it’s fun!
On July 1st, 2011, Beowulf Alley Theatre Company, 11 South 6th Avenue, Tucson is hosting a community party. We’re celebrating 10 years in Tucson and you’re invited! Whether you have been involved with Beowulf before, have attended performances, or are new to us, all are welcome to our Downtown location with our brightly lit marquee. Bring your neighbors, friends and family.
Come together, learn what we have to offer, share ideas, explore volunteering, even submit suggestions for possible plays or activities to experience at Beowulf. We invite you to engage with Board Members, the Managing Director, Directors and Program Chairs as well as those who participate as actors and technicians for our various programs.
The Drawing Studio & Beowulf Alley Gallery hosts Tucson Cultural Covers 1977-1984, by Andrew Rush from 2-11p. Rush was commissioned by a unique joint effort of the Arizona Theatre Company, the Tucson Symphony, the Arizona Opera, and UA Presents to promote a greater interest in Tucson’s professional arts.As the evening progresses, from about 6p – 11p, look for live performances, including live music, samples of what is to come from Beowulf and its various programs and even a video presentation. A silent auction with some wonderful items will be part of the event. Drinks and light food will be available. A donation to support our community work is appreciated. PLEASE bring your friends, your family, EVERYONE! Please help us spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, whatever you can. This is a great way for you to experience and learn about our community of theatre.
Do you work with another non-profit organization in the community that might like to team up with Beowulf to do some good? PLEASE let them know that we want to partner with other organizations to pursue a common goal of building and sustaining a strong, thriving, caring community. We are seeking volunteers for this event so if you can share a few hours, please contact Tristyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know how spontaneous our community is but we need some idea of how many will be attending. Please contact Tristyn at email@example.com and tell us Yes, No or Maybe, your name and how many might be coming just so we can get a rough idea of attendance, and please do not hesitate to ask questions. Please help support and promote not only Theatre Arts, but All Arts, the impact they have on the community and local economy, and the way they can truly help a community learn, grow and thrive. Thank you for your support throughout our 10 years.
Philanthropy with Phlavor at Pastiche Continues Till June 30th.
Who doesn’t love to eat good food and enjoy a beverage? Well, Pastiche Modern Eatery is all about that and the entire month of June, Pastiche is home to Philanthropy with Phlavor, a tremendous community event that serves many non-profit organizations in Tucson, brought to you by the proprietors, Pat and Julie Connors. Now in its 12th year, these terrific neighbors have made it possible for organizations large and small to benefit from their customers’ dining out in June and October. At the close of each dining experience, each table is presented with a checklist of the top 40 organizations chosen during the previous PWP. Beowulf Alley is proud to be a long-time member of that list. We are grateful to the patrons who choose our organization to receive a Pastiche donation. We use that contribution to thank our hard-working, committed volunteers.
So please, if you’re thinking about eating out in June, please visit Pastiche and at the end of your meal, check the box for Beowulf Alley. You can thank Pastiche for their service to the community AND thank a volunteer at the same time for their time and talent! Visit http://www.pastichme.com
