Benefit performance on Thursday, February 10th has been canceled.

All  regular remaining performances of “Sylvia” at Sierra Madre Playhouse will continue as originally scheduled.

The Sierra Madre Playhouse is a lovingly-restored Art Deco gem of a theatre, a landmark cultural resource on Sierra Madre”™s main street. But it”™s been just a touch chilly inside on cold nights, and so the Playhouse is having a benefit performance of the popular comedy “Sylvia” on Thursday, February 10, 2011, to raise funds to restore the heating system of the building to its peak efficiency and ensure the future comfort of theatre patrons.

Hosted by the play’s canine star, Tanna Frederick, is a reception at 7:00 p.m. featuring Champagne, wine and hors d”™oeuvres, to be held prior to the benefit performance.

Then, at 7:30, the play will commence.  “Sylvia” is A.R. Gurney”™s comedy about New York”™s most lovable dog and her master. The play stars the adorable four-legged friend Tanna Frederick (also currently starring in the movie “Queen of the Lot” now playing on the Laemmle circuit), along with humans Stephen Howard, Cathy Arden and Frank Dooley. Gita Donovan directs.  “Sylvia” is produced by Christine Soldate.

Tickets for this special benefit performance, including the delightful reception, are $50.00 each and can be reserved by calling (626) 355-4318.

*** Performances of “Sylvia” run until February 19, 2011. Fris. & Sats. at 8 p.m., Suns. at 2:30 p.m. Dark on Sunday, January 16.***

The Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at:

87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre, CA 91024.
