Food drive for Bay Food Ministry at Huntington Playhouse

The Metro-West Kiwanis Club with the help of Huntington Playhouse will hold a food drive to benefit the Bay Food Ministry on Sunday, Nov. 25, at the 2 p.m. matinee performance of “The Winter Wonderettes.”

Huntington Playhouse will discount their full-priced tickets for every five non-perishable food items brought in that day. The theatre will deduct increments of $5 off the price of an adult ticket, up to $20. So if five items are brought in, $5 is deducted from the full priced adult ticket. If 10 items are brought in, $10 is deducted and the discount continues at the 15 and 20 item levels as well. No other discounts apply.

Bay Food Ministry was formed in 1989 and is now operating in its 23rd year as food pantry to residents of Bay Village and surrounding communities who meet income guidelines for State of Ohio food programs. It relies on donations of non-perishable food and also purchases over 2,000 pounds of non-perishable, dairy and frozen foods along with non-food items from Cleveland Food Bank. Currently Bay Food Ministry serves over 200 people each month, representing 83 households, providing a generous three-day supply of food on the last Friday of each month.

“The Winter Wonderettes” are back and they are entertaining at the annual Harper’s Hardware Holiday Party. When Santa turns up missing, the girls must use their talent and creative ingenuity, plus some great holiday tunes such as “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Winter Wonderland” and many other seasonal favorites, to save the day. The result is, of course, marvelous! This entertaining show will delight audiences of all ages.

The production opens on Nov. 23 and plays through Dec. 16.

To make a reservation to support the Bay Food Ministry Food Drive, contact the box office at 440-871-8333. Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Rd. in Bay Village.
