Dance Benefit Concert at CCU hopes to raise relief funds

The UPstage Theatre Company is putting on "Love & Haiti: a Dance Benefit Concert" at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 27 at Wheelwright Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University. Admission is free, but donations are requested for the Haiti relief fund.

Donations will also be shared with the nonprofit called To Write Love On Her Arms, an organization that helps people struggling with self-injury, suicide, depression and addiction.

Chantapella, the Upstage a capella group, will perform "For the Longest Time" and "Kiss the Girl," featuring five musical theatre majors: Caleb Jernigan, Rob Stetson, Ryan Shaeffer, Drew Taylor and Justin Ables.

Magician Matt McCoy is also featured. He is a sophomore musical theatre major who has performed magic his whole life in South Carolina, Las Vegas and Hungary.

Dancers will perform a wide range of styles from classic jazz to tap, lyrical and modern. Also theatre majors, they include Jackie Wiatrowski, Townsend Pass, Jenna Tummino, Adrienne Griffiths, James Wells, Katie Smith, Jamie White, Sydney Hough, Rachel Hogan, Elyse Brown and Joseph Rosko.

UPstage is a CCU student-run organization of theatre students who annually stage three productions, produce a charity dance concert, have an improv comedy troop that performs each semester as the UNcastables, as well as staging monthly cabarets.
