Michael Jackson Night
Saturday evening, October 28th from 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Bijou Theatre, 275 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport
Sponsored by: Catholic Charities for Bethlehem House
In 2000 Bethlehem House I and II was opened on Jackson Avenue in Stratford, serving as transitional homes for formerly homeless families. Since then it has continued to serve homeless families. In 2007 we turned it over to Catholic Charities, since they had more resources than the Stratford clergy coalition had.
For the past few years, we have been putting on benefit shows to help raise awareness and funds to further the cause. This year, Louie Zayas (an old friend of Bethlehem House) invited us to share an event at his Bijou Theatre in Bridgeport.
“The Ultimate Michael Experience” starring Joby Rogers is the essential Michael Jackson Tribute Show. “UMX” celebrates the music and dancing of the legendary ‘King of Pop’! This multimedia theatrical experience takes audiences on an amazing journey through the life and music of one the greatest and inspirational entertainers of all time.
