Not only is Jane Pesci-Townsend one of the most galvanizing forces of nature imaginable as a performer, she is an amazing teacher / director who has inspired legions of performers. Sadly she’s been battling cancer. Signature Theater is hosting an all-star fundraiser:
Give it up for Jane!
On Monday July 13th, Washington’s theatrical community is coming together for a special fundraiser for DC actress Jane Pesci Townsend entitled Give it up for Jane!. Jane has appeared on our stage in Putting It Together and Funny Girl, and teaches in our Overtures program. She has been battling cancer and we want to help with her medical bills and support her on her recovery.
At 8pm on July 13, come to a special cabaret that promises to be fun and crazy – every trait of Jane’s personality! It will be a great time and you can make donations at the buckets at the door. We’re hoping to raise $10,000. The evening features Signature favorites Sherri L. Edelen, Eleasha Gamble, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Matt Conner, Evan Casey, Nick Blaemiere, James Gardiner, Channez & Rob McQuay, plus a number of special guests!
If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation to help Jane, please send a check to the theatre made out to Signature Theatre with JANE on the memo. Signature will be donating the proceeds from the evening to Jane.
Thanks for everyone’s help and support and let’s all Give it up for Jane!
