The following is an announcement from Riverside Theatre Works:
A Hyde Park theater will be transformed into a casino this Saturday night, in a fund-raiser for Riverside Theatre Works that includes a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas.
For one night only, casino tables will fill the theater and lounge in Riverside’s home, in the former French’s Opera House on Fairmount Avenue. The evening will also include a silent auction, a raffle, and performances from acclaimed cabaret singer John O'Neil and Mixed Emotions, Riverside's own teen performing troupe. Tickets cost $50 and include $1,000 worth of chips.
All proceeds will benefit Riverside Theatre Works, one of Boston's most cherished community theaters. Now in its 30th year, Riverside offers professional shows, summer camps, and classes for children, teens, and adults. Riverside’s programs have launched some students into professional theater careers -- alumni have performed on Broadway and in national tours -- and have built the skills and confidence of hundreds of others.
Doors open at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 2; tables open at 8 p.m. Riverside Theatre Works is located at 45 Fairmount Ave., Hyde Park.
