HOPE Partnership’s Night at the Theatre Tonight Features, ‘Man of La Mancha’

hope-partnership-logo_162x104ESSEX – HOPE Partnership’s Annual Night at the Theatre is fast approaching and the event is expected to be sold out. This year’s event at the historic Ivoryton Playhouse, takes place on Thursday, Sept. 15, and features one of the world’s most popular musicals, Man of La Mancha, starring Connecticut’s own David Pittsinger.

One of the world’s most popular musicals, Man of La Mancha, the “Impossible Dream” musical, is based on Cervantes’ masterpiece Don Quixote, and tells of the adventures of a mad, aging nobleman who embarrasses his respectable family by his adventures. At times both inspiring and thought provoking, the story is both very entertaining and moving, and will warm the heart of everyone whose spirits were ever raised by the prospect of a victory by the underdog against all the odds.

HOPE Partnership is a non-profit dedicated to educating, advocating and developing affordable workforce housing opportunities in Southern Middlesex County and the surrounding communities. The need for affordable housing for those who work in our community continues to be a challenge and HOPE looks for creative ways to meet this challenge.
