This fall, the Strollers are ready to put the “fun” back in fundraising with a wild weekend of bingo and line dancing! The Maplewood-based troupe has announced that this year’s fundraiser will once again consist of back to back events: a classic Bingo Night scheduled for Friday, September 20 and a back-to-the-honky-tonk evening of line dancing set for the following night, Saturday, September 21. Both events will take place at The Woodland in Maplewood, NJ.
First up is Bingo Night on Friday, September 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes 3 cards. Daubers and additional cards may be purchased at the event. Fabulous prizes range from a share of the pot to merchandise and services donated by local businesses.
An Evening of Line Dancing set to an eclectic mix of Western and other popular music will follow on Saturday, September 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $10 per person. A professional instructor will be on hand to demonstrate moves.
Both events will be held at The Woodland, 60 Woodland Road in Maplewood. Tickets will be available at the door, cash only. Refreshments will also be available for purchase.
The Strollers of Maplewood was established in 1932 "to provide an opportunity for artistic and dramatic education and enjoyment for its members and the community." The troupe’s 88th season will open with the eclectic musical Working in November, followed by a children’s theater production, How the World Got Wisdom, in late January/early February. The season continues with Lucille Fletcher’s suspenseful mystery Night Watch in March and concludes with Horton Foote’s heartwarming drama The Trip to Bountiful in May.
