THREE FUNDRAISING EVENTS IN OCTOBER

Broadway Breakfast at Cafe with Soul

Imagine the fun of a singing waitstaff restaurant right here in Doylestown! On Saturday, October 26th the CB West Harlequin Club is taking over Café with Soul and providing diners with just that kind of fun dining experience. Between the hours of 8-11:30am guests of the restaurant will enjoy performances from the club’s upcoming musical, Chicago, as well as selections from other Broadway favorites. No special tickets or reservations. Just come out for breakfast and enjoy the entertainment! Café with Soul is located at 800 N. Easton Road in Doylestown. A portion of the proceeds from the breakfast will be donated to the Harlequin Club. We look forward to seeing you there! Students interested in singing at the event should contact Jessica. Crew students interested in helping should contact Molly Clark. Please share event information with friends and family. You can share from our Facebook page or you can share the Patch event. https://patch.com/pennsylvania/doylestown/calendar/event/20191026/663839/broadway-breakfast-at-cafe-with-soul

IMDb bio:

Lou Volpe is the inspiration for the non-fiction book Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town, and the Magic of Theater by former student Michael Sokolove. For 44 years, until he retired in 2013, Volpe ran the award winning drama program at Harry S Truman High School in Levittown, Pennsylvania. His theater program was the first to do high school level productions of several Broadway hits including Rent, Les Misérables, and Beauty and the Beast.


We are recommending that all students read the book Drama High before the induction.
