The Hope annual dance concerts began in the fall of 2008 as members of the Phantom cast came up with the idea of staging a benefit–donating their time and talent–to support Family Promise of Las Vegas. Family Promise is a non-profit organization that assists homeless families in the Las Vegas valley to achieve lasting independence by mobilizing the community to provide safe shelter, meals, and support services for them.
Now in their 5th year of Hope, part of the proceeds from this performance will go to the College of Southern Nevada’s Performing Arts Center. The Performing Arts Center’s share of proceeds will go to its “Friends of the Horn Theatre” and be used to enhance productions and provide access to the arts for underserved populations in our community.
The show itself will feature a collection of ballet presentations and musical numbers featuring performers and musicians from Phantom as well as dancers from Nevada Ballet Theatre and various Las Vegas productions.
This is also the fifth year of a partnership between Family Promise of Las Vegas and the CSN Performing Arts Center to present a performance of this type, which is a benefit for each organization and includes a silent auction and reception with the performers and crew.
