Act Two – a fundraiser for Gotta Getta Gimmick – September 28 2013

Act Two ~ a Musical Theatre Fundraiser and Party In support of Gotta Getta Gimmick

Isn’t it appropriate that Victoria’s musical theatre company, Gotta Getta Gimmick, has scheduled a fundraiser/party for Culture Days?  I got to know co-founders Brad L’Ecuyer and Clayton Baraniuk when my son attended the Canadian College of Performing Arts (they are both grads). He then went on to perform in their summer Butchart Garden shows.

Since 2011 they have been organizing the well-attended chorus|line|cabaret events (with the next session featuring Marvin Hamlisch soon to begin). If you thrill to the idea of an evening of show tunes, this event should be on your radar screen.
