PAL Stratford’s Expect the Extraordinary Monday September 15, 2014 8pm Avon Theatre

PAL Stratford’s ninth annual Expect The Extraordinary “Heart and Home – in Heels” hosted by Lucy Peacock indeed provided extraordinary surprises in music, passion, magic and stagecraft. Counting the audience, actors, musicians, backstage wizards, volunteers and front of house hosts, close to one thousand people supported the PAL Stratford objective of “Caring for our own.” In addition to other programs supporting artists in our performing arts community, proceeds from the event help PAL provide affordable housing in Stratford.

Expect the Extraordinary! is made possible each year through the generosity of the talented artists and performers based in Stratford, and the time and energy of the staff, cast and crew of the Stratford Festival. From one caring community led by Lucy Peacock, a significant amount was raised on Monday evening and it is earmarked to fund the ongoing operation of PAL Stratford’s community programs and residence.

The success of Monday’s event belongs to all who conceived, created, performed, staged, lit, fed, donated, auctioned, poured, opened, closed, swept and tidied but especially Lucy. Thank you Lucy once again for opening your heart and home while making the evening’s magic extraordinary. Thank you to the Stratford Festival, to participating members of Canadian Actors Equity, A F of M Local 149, and IATSE Locals 357and 924, the front of house hosts, the silent auction coordinators and lastly, but not least, the PAL Stratford volunteers and board members who have worked tirelessly for months stewarding the event to a magnificent conclusion.

Brava/Bravo to all!
