ROGER RICKER & FRIENDS CONCERT: “ROCKET MAN” Sept. 15
The Media Theatre’s Roger Ricker has his annual fundraising concert on Saturday September 15. “Rocket Man” will feature Ricker singing classic hits of the ’70’s as well as special guests and a youth ensemble, who will sing a medley of songs from Broadway’s “The Lion King”. GET TICKETS
“The theme this year is moving forward like a rocket,” Ricker explained. “Working together, we are able to have a bright future.”
“This annual concert has become a tradition,” Ricker said. “The difference this time is that it is happening later in the calendar year on a Saturday, as opposed to a Wednesday night in the summertime. We are opening our entire season a bit later than usual, starting with “Sweeney Todd” in October, so it seemed logical to have this fundraiser closer to the start of the 2018-19 season.”
The Volunteer of The Year Award will be given to West Chester’s Rege McAden during the concert. She’s been volunteering her time for a several years, coordinating large groups which attend the theatre’s Broadway Series and Children’s Shows. She also, with her connection to West Chester Friends School, seeks out a Scholarship student each year for the summer camp, and assists in other ways such as being a volunteer judge for the “Vocalist” contest.
