FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THEY improv to provide 'Justifiable Homicide' in a show of Titanic proportions on Pompano Beach to benefit people with developmental disabilities on June 6th.
Pompano Beach, FL: THEY improv, leaders in South Florida comedy, continues its pioneering ways with a benefit murder mystery performance on Wednesday, June 6th at 7pm at "The New Mermaid" in Pompano Beach.
The show will be themed on 'The Titanic' with all patrons being on-board the infamous ship.
"Not to worry," said Director of THEY improv Todd Rice, "Those attending are in first class so will have first dibs on the lifeboats."
The evening will feature a crazy cast of characters amidst murder and mayhem. A night that will not soon be forgotten all for a great cause, the Whispering Oaks residential program for people with developmental disabilities.
Whispering Oaks is a residential program, offering a variety of services to young men and women that have multiple abilities. Each person living here has their own room, often for the first time in their lives. It allows them the opportunity to grow and learn and become productive members of society.
"The state is imposing large budget cuts in the areas that support people with developmental disabilities," said Merisa Lavere, the Development Coordinator for Resources for Human Development that runs Whispering Oaks. "The people we serve are faced with unbelievable challenges every day, as part of their normal life. Our challenge is to raise the funds needed to help them become more independent and to find the community support needed to help us achieve our goals."
This marks one of the first uses of the THEY improv 'Justifiable Homicide' program using Murder Mystery shows to benefit area charities. THEY improv is already well known for raising tens of thousands of dollars for charity through their Comedy With A Cause program, and this is a new extension of that program.
"We love helping where we can," said THEY improv Director Todd Rice. "It's hard to imagine anything more important than helping a program that helps people to help themselves."
The event will be well-attended and is for a great cause. Come and support this event. If you would like to attend or just to see how you can help, call Merisa Lavere at 561-870-5227 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
