The New Paradigm Theatre is proud to present - TRASH TO TREASURE A fashion show to benefit scholarships for “in need” students
Saturday, June 4th- 3pm at The Fairfield Circle Inn 417 Post Road, Fairfield CT
NPT is proud to present up and coming designer Vaughn Sims from the University of Bridgeport, in a fashion show created to benefit scholarship funding for “in need” students to participate in NPT’s production of the musical, OLIVER! A REINVENTED version that is multi-ethnic, multi-gendered and multi-generational. Hostess/MC Randye Kaye will describe his fashions.
Vaughn is designing and building a completely unique line of fashion-wear made of recycled materials and trash that will be modeled in our fashion show and worn in the production of OLIVER as well! This production is also a collaboration with the Greater Bridgeport Council of churches and their soup kitchen, pantry, youth programming and NPT’s Broadway professionals.
Music Director: Paul Bogaev (Grammy award winning music producer: Film: Chicago, Dreamgirls, Across the Universe; Broadway: Aida, Spiderman, Tarzan, Bombay Dreams, Les Miz, Cats, Chess)
Stage Director: Scott Bryce: (Emmy nominated actor- TV: ER, Reba, and Sex in the City, Popular, Homeland; Film: Above Freezing, Ghost Dog, Lethal Weapon 3, and Up Close and Personal)
Updating OLIVER means that NPT can shine a spotlight on the council’s work in the Bridgeport community through the actual themes presented in the musical i.e. Homelessness, Hunger and Poverty. A new way to use theatre and fashion to make a difference in the community.
The fashion show will kick this experience off for NPT! It combines NPT’s Youth Board of directors (teens from all over Fairfield and New Haven counties who have been working with Vaughn to learn “costume design” and make the outfits) as well as a variety of models in all shapes and sizes.
All tickets are $35 and all proceeds go directly to NPT’s mentoring program. Tickets: www.nptheatre.org 203-357-5021
