JinHi Soucy Rand founded Muse Arts Warehouse just over three years ago, and in that short span the venue has proven indispensable to the Savannah arts community.
The Collective Face has been producing plays there. The Odd Lot Comedy Troupe does improv there most Mondays. The Psychotronic Film Society and CinemaSavannah hold film screenings there. Vinyl Appreciation will have its 3rd anniversary at Muse during the 2013 Savannah Urban Arts Festival.
When JinHi founded it in 2010, she recognized that the local arts community simply didn’t have enough spaces to utilize. Three yeas later, Muse has hosted pretty much every kind of possible event.
So it will be both exciting and gratifying to support Muse at the big musical revue and fundraiser “Show Me the Love” on Monday April 8th, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Savannah Theatre and at Bryson Hall nearby.
From the Facebook event invitation:
Monday night, April 8th, at the Historic Savannah Theatre, a cavalcade of talented local singers, dancers and actors are asking you to “Show Me the Love” and support the continued existence of one of Savannah’s most unique and needed performing arts spaces. […]
This one-time-only evening of food, drink, music and song (food and drink starts at 5:30pm across the street from the theatre at Bryson Hall, with the main show starting at 7:00pm) benefits Muse Arts Warehouse, an Award-Winning Downtown arts venue committed to providing affordable and accessible performance space to the area’s diverse arts community.
Despite winning accolades from performers and audience members alike for the amazingly eclectic nature of the plays, concerts, film screenings, dance recitals, spoken word events and community gatherings which take place regularly at Muse, increased operating expenses threaten the viability of this beloved theater space.
So… Friends of Muse Arts Warehouse and the Historic Savannah Theatre’s cast and crew have teamed up to offer a fabulous evening of live entertainment featuring performances by some of Savannah’s most talented singers!
The fun begins LONG BEFORE the curtain opens – with a “Show Me The Love” COCKTAIL SOCIAL & CONCERT at the lovely BRYSON HALL (5 East Perry Street, just steps from the Historic Savannah Theatre), starting at 5:30pm and running till 8:30pm.
** There will be a CASH BAR, plus delicious BBQ for sale from GERALD’S PIG & SHRIMP on Tybee and the world-famous LEOPOLD’S ICE CREAM. Live Music by the PAUL KLECKER TRIO.
** Proceeds from food and drink sales benefit the Muse Arts Warehouse.
** At 7:00pm, the Musical Revue begins at the Historic Savannah Theatre (222 Bull Street).
** General Admission tickets are just $20.00 at the door.
No reservations required, and we’ll be giving away Door Prizes!
Featured artists in this Revue include such notable local performers as Kim Polote, Trae Gurley, Huxsie Scott, Jeff Hall, Nicole Koplik, Grace Diaz, Miriam Center, Jimmy Coleman, Robert Bush, Laura Keena, Dandy Barett, Bob Fennell, Chris Chandler and Sandra Nix – PLUS the incredibly talented cast of the Historic Savannah Theatre.
There will also be an extensive silent auction.
