SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY OCT 7, 2020

While its freshly renovated theater remains empty due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is determined to keep its artists working and the community entertained safely. The arts organization will present an open-air concert series, starting Friday, October 9th, featuring a live band led by Resident Music Director (and bass player) James “Jay” Dodge II, accompanying a variety of popular WBTT artists, in WBTT's newly created safe, outdoor seating area."I decided to begin our open-air series with what WBTT does best!" said Nate Jacobs, WBTT’s Founder/Artistic Director. "I feel the music of the '70s is the perfect choice to lift the hearts and spirits of our patrons during a time when we all could all use some inspiration." Tickets are being sold early to last season's subscribers with a pre-sale access code and will be available to the general public starting October 5. Cost is $40 for adults and $20 for students or active military.
