WAM Theatre is generously offering a pair of tickets ($100 value) to “Stars In The Orchard: A magical midsummer night’s cocktail party to benefit WAM Theatre,” to be held at Hilltop Orchards in Richmond, Mass., on Wednesday, July 15, 2015, at 6:30pm, to a lucky contributor to the Rogovoy Report in support of the Rogovoy Report’s curated e-newsletters and online stories it provides free to all. These General Access tickets are nearly sold out.
For every $10 contribution made to the Rogovoy Report between now and Sunday, July 12, 2015, at midnight, participants will be enrolled in this thank-you giveaway program. Every $10 increment counts toward another chance to win, e.g., $20 = 2 chances to win; $40 = 4 chances to win.
A contributor will be selected randomly on Monday, July 13, to receive a pair of tickets to this exciting benefit event valued at $100.
The gala event includes:
- A live auction including items from Chris Noth, Nicholas Kristof, Karen Allen, Debra Jo Rupp, Alan Chartock, Michael Gill, Alison Larkin, and Jayne Atkinson.
- Sunset hayrides
- Moonlit serenades
- Clowns in the orchards
- Apple cider donuts
- Tunes from a rambling band
- Campfire under the stars
- Jazz Quartet
- Hearty hors d’oeuvres catered by Hilltop Orchards
- Wine made on site by Furnace Winery
Guests will arrive to the jazz stylings of Rich Vinette Quintet. Local luminaries will surprise and delight by being “miscast” in monologues or songs they would never be cast in but always dreamed of playing, featuring Josh Aaron McCabe, Kelly Galvin, Kim Stauffer, and Ryan Winkles. Festivities continue with the rambling music of master guitarist Don McGrory and bassist Miles Lally by the campfire.
Hosted by Hilltop Orchards, the evening’s guests will be the first to learn about this year’s beneficiary plus meet the cast and see a sneak peek from WAM Theatre’s fall mainstage production, HOLY LAUGHTER.
All contributions made to the Rogovoy Report between now and July 12, 2015, will count toward the thank-you giveaway. No other enrollment is necessary. As always, those who have set up recurring payments to the Rogovoy Report will automatically be enrolled in the giveaway — set up a recurring donation now to take advantage of more upcoming offers such as this one, including free dinners for two at the region’s finest restaurants and tickets to various spring and summer performing arts events.

Like the Rogovoy Report itself, WAM Theatre is a local entity founded in 2010 by artistic director Kristen van Ginhoven. Inspired by the book “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, WAM Theatre is nonprofit based in Berkshire County, Massachusetts.
WAM Theatre’s philanthropic mission is two-fold: first, to create theatrical events for everyone, with a focus on women theatre artists and/or stories of women and girls; and second, to donate a portion of the proceeds from those events to organizations that benefit women and girls. Since 2010, WAM Theatre has donated more than $15,500 to its beneficiaries.
