Fantastical Theatricals' Sept. 1 Benefit at Natasha's

Most of you are likely aware that several members of the Lexington Theatre community have pulled together in an effort of help raise funds on behalf of fellow blogger Robert Parks Johnson, one of Lexington's most prominent local actors, whose medical benefits have run out, leaving him stranded without the funds to get the life saving medicines he will need to win his fight against cancer. 

Producer Kathy Hobbs is pleased that her own theatre, Fantastical
Theatricals is part of this effort.  "We are performing our show for him on September 1st at Natasha's Bistro and Bar, and have our own general admission performances on September 2nd at 9th at the newly opened Sutton's Restaurant, at 110 North Locust Street in front of Kroger Marketplace on Richmond Road."  

"Of all the theatre groups involved in this effort for Robert Parks Johnson, my theatre is the only one involved that receives ZERO public or arts funding. The September 1st benefit is truly a donation with absolutely NOTHING from the proceeds of the performance going to defray the cost of the production at all. No ticket sales, nothing. We do hope that the September 2nd & 9th shows can help make up for the cost of the evening for us, so that we may continue to have evenings like this benefit. Fundraisers are a particular joy for Fantastical Theatricals."

"This performance is truly a gift for Mr. Parks-Johnson, so any support we can receive to make this run a success will be most appreciated."
"Please feel free to contact me at the below number or email me with any further questions you may have, and know that speaking on behalf of my cast members as well as myself, I appreciate any support you may be able to give."
