No one knows better than the Sanderson Sisters that Halloween is in October, but they just LOVE to spread their mischief all year round! And besides, March is nearly halfway to Halloween, isn’t it? Come support the Garfield Center for the Arts at their 2024 Gala Fundraiser on March 9th, and be treated to a wickedly funny, musical romp as only the Sanderson Sisters can deliver.
“Winnie’s Rock Cauldron” is the dreamchild of nationally celebrated Bette Midler impersonator Jennica McCleary, who plays the leading role of Winifred Sanderson in her show. McCleary has a long and impressive career as a tribute artist, performing with an uncanny ability to look and sound exactly like Bette Midler. She was the performer chosen by Disney’s Magic Kingdom to originate the role of Winnifred Sanderson in Disney’s ‘Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular’ premiere in 2015 (her performance was captured in a now-viral video). She has worked with Las Vegas’s Legends in Concert and Orlando’s Pattycake Productions, and she has been featured on MTV, VH1, Entertainment Tonight, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade, and on Freeform in both their Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Bash and their Halloween Road. She has gained national and worldwide fans of her growing body of work as Bette, but she is also a gifted actor/singer/dancer and choreographer. She has an incredible resume of regional theatre work, and she has twice brought her talent to the Eastern Shore as a choreographer for productions of “The Rocky Horror Show Live” and “Once on this Island.”
With “Winnie’s Rock Cauldron” as its centerpiece, this year’s Gala will not only be remembered for years to come, it will make you want to celebrate Halloween all year long!
The Gala’s VIP tickets will include a cocktail hour and a free, optional photo opportunity with the cast after the performance. VIP doors open for cocktail hour at 7 PM; Balcony Show Only doors open at 7:30 PM, the performance begins at 8 PM.
