Decatur, Georgia – Decatur Community Players is hosting “All Together Now,” an event celebrating the local theater on Saturday, November 13 at 7 p.m. at the Oakhurst Baptist Church, 222 East Lake Drive in Decatur.
“This is 100% fundraising for local refugee organizations. We do a Broadway [revue] it’s a global event organized just this weekend through the Musical Theater International, ”said DCP director Shell Ramirez.
The global fundraising event will celebrate the return of live theater and give organizations around the world the opportunity to locally produce and present an exclusive musical revue, according to Broadway World. Ramirez told Broadway World that her participation in this global event improved her ability to be a better community activist for the arts.
“We have lost a number of arts programs in my area,” she told Broadway World. “I feel that inspiring children with causes while learning about the amazing world of theater is the key to developing empathy. Giving back is always a win and MTI giving back this weekend is such a great idea! I’m glad I decided to get the license. Plus, the app made it so easy to spread out our rehearsals with three groups rehearsing apart.
The DCP travel team will perform, along with the Oakhurst Baptist Church Choir and special guest Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls.
“We will be singing songs from 15 different musicals, including Emily Saliers singing ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ as Mary Poppins, Decatur Community Players singing songs, such as ‘Seasons of Love’ by RENT, plus 20 more and [the] Oakhurst Baptist Church [choir is] sing four songs, ”Ramirez said.
All proceeds will be donated to Just Bakery, Global Village Project, the International Rescue Committee and the International Community School.
“The kids do this to give back,” Ramirez said. “We will also have guest speakers from [the] International Community School and Just Bakery, two of the four organizations we fundraise for. “
