This Friday, March 4 at 8 p.m. in the Columbia High School Black Box Theater, magician Michael Healy will present “An Evening of Intimate Magic” to help raise funds for the Columbia High School Parnassian Society’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival performances this August.
Parnassian drama students were tapped last year to perform at the renowned Fringe Festival. Some two dozen South Orange – Maplewood teens will travel to Edinburgh in August, 2016 to perform on the world stage, representing CHS, the South Orange – Maplewood School District, and the SOMA community.
Janet Bustrin, who runs the Parnassian Society and teaches at CHS, said then, “CHS’ Parnassian Society has a long tradition in the community – since 1895! It is a great group of kids and adults who consistently turn-out theater with very high production and entertainment values. It is such an honor to have been recognized and selected for this incredible privilege to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe. We’re so excited.”
To ensure that all eligible students can attend the Fringe Festival, parents and students are raising funds.
Tickets for Friday’s event are $25 and can be obtained by calling 973-713-6866 or at the door on Friday evening (17 Parker Avenue in Maplewood). Michael Healy’s magical artistry amazes and delights audiences nation wide. Be prepared to be AMAZED!
