The benefit for Macomb’s arts and cultural programs features Broadway’s Next H!T Musical

The Macomb Community College Foundation will present the fifth annual Comedy & Cocktails, a benefit for the college’s arts and cultural programs, Friday, October 19, at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts and Lorenzo Cultural Center, located on the college’s Center Campus in Clinton Township.

Presented by First State Bank, the event begins in the Lorenzo Cultural Center at 5:30 p.m. with a champagne reception, open bar, raffle drawings and a silent auction, followed at 7 p.m. by a seated dinner.

At 8 p.m., the festivities move to the Macomb Center for a performance of Broadway’s Next H!t Musical, an unscripted theatrical show in which audience members provide made-up hit song titles and the  performers  ad-lib the “nominated songs.” The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast improvises an entire Broadway musical, complete with plot twists, memorable characters and witty dialogue.

Tickets for Comedy & Cocktails are $150 each and include premier theater seating. Purchase of a table of 10 receives a 10 percent discount. For $250, patrons receive a ticket to the event and recognition in the program book.  For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.macomb.edu/comedy, call the Macomb Community College Foundation at 586.445.7302, or email foundation@macomb.edu.
