Join Clinton, Thea at "Into the Blue"

Posted By on Wed, May 4, 2016 at 1:20 PM


The Thea Foundation's gala fundraiser "Into the Blue: An Evening with President Bill Clinton," 6:30-9:30 p.m. May 15 at the Clinton Presidential Center, is a hot if pricy ($1,000) ticket. You will get to hang out with Clinton, yes, but also see performances by young artists whose Thea scholarships helped them get a leg up on Broadway and other places where their talent can shine.

This year's performers include actress Batesville native Belinda Allyn, who made her Broadway debut in "Alliance" and will perform the role of Maria in the Paper Mill Playhouse's "West Side Story";  Jacob Watson of Wynne, who made his Broadway debut in "Violet"; soprano Bonnie Frauenthal of Little Rock, who sang the role of Pamina in Opera in the Rock's "Magic Flute"; singer and voice coach Isaiah Bailey of Little Rock; and poet Dylan DeLuca, a Bentonville native. For this second "Into the Blue," a high school student will also perform: Tre’Vaughn Whitley of Little Rock, who was recognized as best in show for his solo acting at the 2016 Arkansas Thespian Festival.

The Thea Foundation recognizes that participation in the arts engenders success in all walks of life. It raises funds to provide art supplies to school, music education and the A+ arts-infused curriculum in Arkansas schools. If you have $1,000 handy, this is a good place to spend it and see for yourself what Thea has done for Arkansas's aspiring youth.
