Dorset, VT (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
TPW Management, award-winning resort community association management company based out of Manchester, VT, is pleased to be the lead sponsor for the upcoming Dorset Theatre Festival Gala Benefit, set for July 22 at the Dorset Playhouse. Acclaimed folk group The Wood Brothers are set to headline this exclusive event, the proceeds from which will support Dorset Theatre Festival’s world-class professional theatre and extensive community outreach and educational programs.
“The Dorset Theatre Festival has served as an important platform for up-and-coming playwrights and new talent for over 37 years, and a big musical act like The Wood Brothers will be a real boost to this year’s gala. The top-notch professional theatre coming out of the Dorset Theatre Festival each year would not be possible without the generous support and donations from the local community, and TPW couldn’t be happier to be a part of this benefit event,” said Paul W. Carroccio, CEO of TPW Management.
An evening with The Wood Brothers—The Whiskey Sessions, the title of this year’s Gala Benefit, will feature a Roaring Twenties theme with prohibition-period cocktails, single barrel bourbon from Vermont’s Whiskey Pig Brewery, a honky-tonk barroom, hors d’oeuvres, and much more.
Named the number #1 folk group by Amazon.com, sibling musicians Chris and Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers will be performing favorites from their breakout album, “Ways Not to Lose” along with the compositions from their 2012 release “Live: Volume One: Sky High.” Chris is a founding member of Medeski Martin & Wood, and Oliver played second guitar with Tinsley Ellis before forming King Johnson. Local favorite Gold Town is set to appear with The Wood Brothers.
This event has limited availability and is sure to be a special evening. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the concert is set to begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $75 each and can be purchased by calling 802-867-2223 or online at http://www.dorsettheatrefestival.org.
Dorset Theatre Festival relies on the support of donors and patrons to present live professional performances of plays by emerging and established playwrights. The current production, Boeing-Boeing, a French farce by Marc Camoletti, has been enthusiastically received. Next up is The Whore and Mr. Moore, a world-premiere written by Michael Cristofer, currently appearing in NBC’s Smash drama. Judd Hirsch, veteran of TV and stage, will play the role of Mr. Moore.
The Dorset Playhouse is located at 104 Cheney Road in Dorset, just off of Church Street.
