As you may or may not know, The Stage Door Theatre here in Yukon lost their home when the city of Yukon elected not to renew the lease on the YMAC building with Yukon Public Schools. The city had been covering utilities for the building and the theatre was charged next to nothing for rent. It was a wonderful set-up for The Stage Door and one for which they were extremely grateful. But it takes lots of capital to pay a monthly lease and utilities on a space large enough to house a theatre and their belongings, so until The Stage Door can raise at least a year’s worth of these monies, they are currently closed.
However, a committee of dedicated individuals who are determined to see The Stage Door rise again, have been meeting and planning various fundraisers to do just that. First on this list is a Zumbathon. Zumba is the current exercise craze that combines music and dance and fun!! So, to that end, The Stage Door is hosting a Zumbathon at Valir Fitness Plus, located at 1091 S. Cornwell in Yukon. It is open to any and all . . . men, women, kids, teens, young and old alike.
The Zumbathon will happen this Friday, October 14 from 7-9 pm. This Zumbathon is going to have a different spin in that it’s a costume Zumba party!! Come in costume or pay the pay fine!! Cost to participate in the event is only $10.00, $15.00 if you come with no costume. There will be several instructors taking you through the routines. During the breaks there will be door prize drawings, prize auctions, and a raffle. All proceeds will go to The Stage Door’s Reboot Fund.
Even if you’re not an exercise enthusiast, you can still come and mingle and enjoy the fun. You can participate at your level, or watch from the sidelines. And just by being there and purchasing your entry ticket, you will be eligible for all of the prizes and can purchase tickets for the raffle and bid in the auctions. It will be a fun evening and a great way to help support The Stage Door’s fundraising efforts.
The committee has a dinner theatre and silent auction in the planning stages for February. Watch for more details in the near future. You can keep up with The Stage Door’s efforts at www.stagedooryukon.com or on the theatre’s facebook page.
So, put together an exercise costume and come Zumba for a cause this Friday!!
