January 9, 2023 (Newark, Delaware): On December 30th, Chapel Street Players presented “CSP Revival,” the launch of its capital campaign to support the move and furnishing of its new theater being built by Lang Development Group. The evening featured live entertainment including Dame Edna’s Honorary Understudy (Scott Mason as Dame Edna), AKA Whoopi (Bettina Williams as Whoopi Goldberg) as emcees, and international Tik Tok star and singer, Marji Eldreth. The show also included videos of CSP’s history and past volunteers, live and silent auctions, a pre New Year’s countdown and champagne toast, and food and drinks courtesy of many local vendors including Blue Crab, Klondike Kates, and Cafe’ Gelato. The event raised over $6,000, which the theater deemed a success for the show. The entertainment was underwritten in part by Lang Cares.
Beyond supporting the event, Lang Cares also provided funds for a children’s program to be developed in the future by Chapel Street Players for kid’s activities, shows, and camps.
