It was a packed Rainy Lake Square on Friday night as friends, family and musical lovers turned out to a special fundraiser put on by Row I Theatre. Called “Summer Lovin’: Our Broadway Favourites,” the revue-styled fundraiser featured many notable performers from the District singing some of their favourite show tunes. Row I Theatre founder and musical director Trevor Barker said the fundraiser brought in $1,800 after expenses, and that the money will go towards helping stage a production of “The Drowsy Chaperone” at the Townshend Theatre this fall. Included in the night’s performers were Trevor Barker, Michael Del Puerto, Katelyn Bruyere, Cynthia Rose Hudson, Cassandra Star and Callahan Armstrong, Cohen Ossachuk, Adrianna McCoy, Joanna Empey, Josie Wilson, Alexis Latter, Brittany Hayes Strachan, Renee Martin-Brown, Ken Brown, Ken Kellar and Liam Dent.
