The best of Broadway comes to Long Island as Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway shines at the John W. Engeman Theater in Northport. The evening’s special performance of this widely acclaimed musical revue, featuring a cast of Broadway stars accompanied by an all-star New York band, will benefit the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the 104-year old historic landmark.
Tickets for the benefit performance are available at two levels: Assistant Lighthouse Keepers ($100 donation) receive reserved seating and a thank you gift. The Lightkeeper level ($500 donation) includes a meet and greet with the cast (no photos/autographs), a cocktail reception (6 p.m – 7:30 pm) with open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres, reserved seating and a thank you gift.
The fundraising goal for the event is $80,000, which will help fill a $300,000 shortfall needed to support this season’s planned structural work.
Adding to the evening’s festivities is a silent auction that will feature unique items and experiences, including a ride on the News12 chopper over Manhattan or Long Island; an original oil painting of the Huntington Lighthouse by award-winning artist Denise Franzino (valued at over $3,000); a tugboat racing experience at the Great North River Tugboat Race and 2016 Competition; and an overnight stay in the historic Borden Flats Lighthouse in Fall River, MA
