CAADC has partnered with Rose Valley Chorus and Orchestra (RVCO) to help raise funds for its homeless shelters. Rose Valley Chorus and Orchestra will be performing Nunsense II: The Second Coming on Friday 6/19/2015 (8:00 p.m.) and Saturday 6/20/2015 (two performances) with a portion of the ticket sales and sponsorships supporting the Save Our Shelters (S.O.S.) program. The S.O.S. Campaign supports the operation of our emergency shelters in Delaware County including the Family Management Center, Life Center of Eastern Delaware County and the Wesley House Shelter.
The RVCO has been performing since 1907. Today it draws its membership from the entire Delaware Valley, a result of its reputation for presenting professional-quality theatrical productions. The voices of the principals and chorus, with the musicianship of the full 35-piece orchestra, rank among the best of the area’s many community musical theater groups.
To purchase tickets please go to their website at http://rvco.org/. The performance will be at Stage One, Performing Arts Center, 101 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, PA 19086.
