Event Details

Join members of the Bridge & Tunnel Collective and some very special guests for a holiday revue for all ages 8pm Friday, December 20 at Towngate Theatre.

“A Very Bridge + Tunnel Christmas III” features: Mr. Fancy Pants, Michael Iafrate, Weird Lightning, Ananga Martin, The Pussyfooters, Zoe Buccella, Matt Heusel, and Chelsey Keding.

In addition, Mario Muscar, member of Towngate’s own Left of Centre Improv Group and frequent player in Towngate productions over the past 20 years, will act as emcee for the show for the third straight year.

The concert will put audience members in a festive mood as multiple musicians take the stage, performing original pieces chock-full of holiday themes. Plenty of holiday standards also make their way to the set list.

B+T’s proceeds from this holiday show will benefit NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, of greater Wheeling. Along with proceeds from the show, in-kind donation items will also be collected on the night of the show and moved to NAMI and their area partners to directly help members of our community. Guests in attendance can bring small or large tarps, blankets and warm winter socks.

Sponsored by Main Street Bank.

Beer and wine will be for sale. Guests can also meet and mingle with the musicians during an after party immediately following the show.
