Coats for the Children

Opening night of Cinderella proudly benefits WRAL’s Coats for the Children, with $5 of every ticket sold going to provide warm coats for children in need. WRAL’s Michelle Mackonochie joined us on opening night to kick things off and celebrate!

Additionally, we will have a Coats for the Children collection box set up in the lobby during the entire run of the show, so feel free to bring new toys and gently used clean coats, hats, and gloves with you to the theatre to make a donation.

Be sure to tune in to WRAL’s Coats for the Children telethon on Friday, December 15th, for a special guest appearance from the Kingdom of Raleigh!
