by Mark Smith

A performance by ‘Pilobolus’ kicks off the Blumenthal’s new gay and lesbian outreach club, Out on the Town.
CHARLOTTE — In an exciting and unprecedented move, Charlotte’s Blumenthal Performing Arts Center has formed Out on the Town, a new gay and lesbian social club sponsored by Q-Notes and Blumenthal and geared directly to the LGBT community. Members will save $10 on tickets to events in all sections and are invited to a free post-show reception with the cast.

The next upcoming event takes place April 30 at 10 p.m. at the Belk Theatre in the Blumenthal. Following the staging of “Pilobolus,” (see Out and About Calendar) members of Out on the Town will be invited to attend a post-show party with cast members.

Upcoming presentations tied in to Out on the Town include “Wildwood Flowers (May 16-27) and “Molly Ringwald as “Sweet Charity” (June 5-10).

“We wanted to reach out to Charlotte’s gay and lesbian community,” said Liz Rothaus, marketing and communications manager at the Blumenthal “It’s part of an attempt by the Blumenthal to reach out to a number of affinity communities.”

If you’re interested in joing Out on the Town, just send your name, email address and address to the Blumenthal at lrothaus@ncbpac.org. You’ll begin to receive information on Out On The Town programs via your email address.
