This Thursday, February 24th, the LGBT Center of Raleigh will host a Grease Sing-Along at the Rialto Theater. Proceeds from the event will go towards OutRaleigh, the LGBT Center’s festival, which will take place in May of this year. The film will be shown on the theater’s main screen, with the lyrics to the songs added so that the audience can easily follow and sing along with the music.
The festival for which the Grease Sing-Along is raising funds looks to be a promising addition to the outdoor event roster for the warmer months to come:
OutRaleigh is envisioned to celebrate Raleigh’s LGBT community, families, friends and supporters in a family-friendly atmosphere. The day-long festival will feature a main stage performance area for regional and local musical groups as well as local dignitaries and speakers. A KidsZone will provide free activities and educational entertainment for young children. City Plaza through Martin St will be closed for the event, allowing businesses and non-profit organizations to set up vendor spaces to interact with the visiting public. Businesses and restaurants in the surrounding downtown area will be encouraged to welcome and support the festival attendees.
Tickets for the event will be $10, and the film begins at 8pm. The Facebook page for the event can be found here.
