With only three nights left, if you haven’t caught one of the showings of Veronica’s Room at the Barn Theatre, try to stop by a special fundraiser showing at Montville Township Municipal Building on Thursday night.
The Montville Educational Foundation and Pathways For Exceptional Children teamed up to host a "Back to School Mixer" at the Barn Theater.
“This show, written by Ira Levin, the author of Rosemary’s Baby, promises a chilling, exciting, roller coaster ride of an evening,” said Michael Abramson, President of the Montville Educational Foundation.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for age-appropriate students. The ticket gets you general admission seating and a cocktail reception from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. featuring complimentary sandwiches, cheese, fruit, wine, beer, soda and water. During intermission, there will be dessert, coffee and tea.
“The profits raised by this event will help the MEF provide funding to teachers for creative ‘out-of-the-box thinking’ for innovative projects that might otherwise not have been available,” said Abramson. “It will also support Pathways goal to help the community gain the knowledge and understanding of how to appropriately include and embrace children of all abilities and provide experiences for children with varying needs to grow, learn and discover their passions together.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the cocktail reception and the show starts at 8 p.m..
If you can’t attend the show, tax deductible donations are appreciated. Payment can be made either via check (payable to “Montville Educational Foundation” or “Pathways”) or PayPal using the link at www.PathwaysKids.org. All prepaid tickets will be waiting for you at the Barn Theatre in an envelope the day of show.

Also, there will be a special check presentation during intermission.
“We have been awarded a $62,000 grant from the Youth Advisory Board with State Farm,” said Melinda Jennis, of Pathways for Exceptional Children. “State Farm is coming on September 26, 2013 to our Barn Theater fundraising event to give us the check at the show's intermission and to meet the kids and mentors who have been a part of our programs. Senator Joe Pennacchio will also be there … before the show starts to express his appreciation to Pathways and State Farm.”
She added that the “grant will be used to increase the programs and equipment at the studio and to begin small businesses in photography, video production, graphic arts, disc jockey, rock band, and more.”Can’t make it to this one, there are two more 8 p.m. showtimes, one on Friday and closing night is Saturday.
