For all of us animal lovers -- and dog lovers in particular.......... JUST DO IT, the award-winning themed reading and performance series, is back at Theatre Charlotte for its seventh season! And it’s going to the dogs again! The third annual dog-themed, dog-friendly show will be held Friday, October 12, 2012 at 8pm!
I'll be in the theatre lobby by 7:15 pm if you'd like to come a little early to "meet up" and sit together -- (I'll wear a shiny gold scarf for you to identify me if we haven't already met). There is a cash bar in the lobby with beer, wine, and soft drinks, fresh popcorn, and other snacks. I'm not planning a pre-event dinner, but if you want suggestions for restaurants in the area, send me an email or post a comment question.
Hope to see you at the theatre! Woof!!
Here's more info about the event:
Featuring new works and performances by local artists fitting the theme “Man’s Best Friend,” admission is still only $5! (Tickets purchased at the door.) As always, there will also be a cash bar, a free raffle and a special appearance by JUST DO IT producer Vito Abate’s Brussels Griffon extraordinaire, Phoebe!
Audience members and performers are invited to bring their own beloved pooches to the show as long as they are leashed (non-retractable leashes), friendly and vaccinated! In addition to the performances, there will also be K9-relevent vendors, adoption and rescue information, a pet food drive for animals in need, and maybe even a dog contest or two!
Following the show, continue the festivities for the Official JUST DO IT “After Pawty” at The Dog Bar, Charlotte’s original and only dog-friendly off-leash bar located in the historical NoDa neighborhood (just minutes away from Theatre Charlotte!) Show your JUST DO IT program for waived membership and exclusive drink specials! Please note that dogs must have proof of current rabies vaccinations (vet records or dog tags), be spayed/neutered if over 1 years of age, and be well behaved off-leash to attend the Dog Bar.
