ATI to hold fundraiser


The Actors Theatre of Indiana will hold a new fundraiser called “Cocktails, Comedy, Costumes” at 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 5 at Ritz Charles, 12156 N. Meridian St., Carmel. ATI is celebrating its 15th season.

The concept was created by ATI supporter Barb Hammer.

Christine Reppert, an ATI board member, is overseeing the fundraiser. The show is designed by ATI founders Don Farrell, Cynthia Collins and Judy Fitzgerald.

The central question of the event is, “Who will model the Million Dollar Quintet Blazers?”

Area residents will model Broadway costumes during the evening. Some of the models include Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard and Carmel City Councilors Kevin Rider, Jeff Worrell and Bruce Kimball. Carmel Fire Dept. Chief David Habousch and Fox59 reporter Sherman Burdette also will participate.

There will be a special Broadway cocktail available and Sun King is donating beer for the event, which is sponsored by United Fidelity Bank and the City of Carmel.

Proceeds benefit ATI and the Student Theater Education Program.

Tickets start at $100. Sponsor tables are available. To purchase tickets, contact Meg Gates Osborne at [email protected]. For more, visit
