Firehouse Ignites: A Really Big (virtual) Show
October 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
$75 suggested donation per ticket
Firehouse Ignites: A Really Big (virtual) Show, presented by the Institution for Savings, is the other half of the Firehouse’s online fundraiser and will be broadcast to your homes beginning at 7pm. It will bring viewers back to the days when Ed Sullivan showcased artists who became big stars in the US after performing on his show. For the Firehouse’s 2020 version, expect performances from local talent including Alex Anthony Band, comedian Steve Sweeney, and an All-Star cast of Firehouse performers. The broadcast can be viewed at home on TVs, computers or smart phones.
Executive Director John Moynihan will act as host although he won’t be doing any impressions of Ed Sullivan. He will, however, continue his tradition of performing for guests and donors who have been delighted at past fundraisers by his original songs, costumes and command of the stage.
Port Plums + Newburyport Olive Oil Company, Beach Plum Florist and Darling Consulting are three of the local businesses who have already committed to hosting watch parties and donate the proceeds to The Firehouse. There is no limit to the number of watch parties that can take place.
Other sponsors of the annual fundraiser are Newburyport Development, The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation,andMatt and Shauna Pieniazek.
