If the only time you’ve seen the Atrium at Eagle Square is when you got lost trying to find the bar after a few hours at Tandy’s, we’ve got a treat for you. And you can contribute to a heartwarming cause in the process.

The Atrium will play host to A Broadway Review on April 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m., a fundraising musical evening to raise money for the Lend Me A Hand Fund at the Payson Center for Cancer Care, a fund established to provide patients who are undergoing chemotherapy and other cancer treatments money to cover out-of-pocket expenses like groceries and gas. The time to buy tickets is now.

Stage fright is no issue for Performers Who Care, the energetic group who started the fund and also are putting on the show. Atrium fright is something of a concern, though, as this will be the first time the performance has taken place in something other than a traditional theater venue. Exotic, no?

Drink, you say? We did say that, didn’t we? There will be a cash bar available, while your ticket will cover the cost of the show as well as dessert and coffee or tea. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at Caring Gifts, 18 N. Main St., the HeartGift Boutique at the Payson Center for Cancer Care or by calling the Payson Center at 230-6035, ext. 6035. To reserve tickets to be held at the door, call 226-0590.

Shameless plug alert: Stay tuned to The Insider this week for an in-depth story about Performers Who Care and the Lend Me A Hand Fund. It’s a moving tale.
