The New England Browncoats are back with the fifth year of “Can’t Stop the Serenity,” a charity fundraiser to benefit the women’s rights organization Equality Now. The event will be held at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, MA June 18th and 19th; the shows start at midnight. Here’s the plan for this year:
This year, we will have 2 different special nights of events. On Friday, June 18th we will be screening Joss Whedon’s award-winning Internet musical sensation Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog featuring a shadowcast performance by The Teseracte Players of Boston. On Saturday June 19th we will be screening Joss Whedon’s 2005 film Serenity. Both events will start at midnight.
In addition to raising money for Equality Now, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Greater Boston Food Bank. In the past four years we have collected over 3,000 lbs. of food for the GBFB. Anyone that brings a donation will be eligible for raffle prizes, including actual props used in the film Serenity.
Admission for each night will be $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show. A special 2-night combo ticket will be available for $25 available in advance only. Tickets will be available starting in May at the Coolidge Corner Theatre Box Office or online at www.coolidge.org.
Can’t Stop the Serenity is an international event, and there will be screenings in cities around the world. To find other events and learn more about CSTS visit http://www.cantstoptheserenity.com/.
