For their April performances of Calendar Girls, the Pinckney Players proudly donated $5.00 from each ticket sold, along with the proceeds of the lobby raffle to the St. Joseph Mercy Brighton Cancer Center. The money was used to help purchase new companion seating for the chemotherapy infusion bays at the Center. The amount donated was over $6,000.00. Dr. Tara M. Breslin MD, Surgical Oncology Specialist, attended the opening Night performance and spoke before curtain about the Center itself and thanked the Pinckney Players for collaborating with them. The Pinckney Players would in turn like to thank each and every person who supported their production. Whether you were part of the 20 person cast and crew, donated to the raffle baskets, or attended the performance and/or bought raffle tickets, you helped to make this show and our partnership with the hospital a success! Director, Lynn Wilde Concannon, and Producer, Ann Langford, met with Development Director Kathryn Rusak to deliver the check. They are proud to be among the first theatres in southeastern Michigan to bring the poignant and uplifting story of the real-life “Calendar Girls“ to the stage. Its questions about cancer, personal struggles, courage, risk, friendship, and self-discovery were certainly thought provoking. This year marks the Pinckney Players 25th anniversary, and they are dedicated to bringing classics, musicals and new shows to Pinckney and the surrounding Livingston County communities.
