Pony Up for Theatre in the Square Sept 20th!

Polo Fundraiser & Family Festival
September 20, 2009
12 Noon to 6 PM

Break out your polo shirt and vintage Lilly Pulitzer dresses and join Theatre in the Square on Sunday, September 20, from 12 Noon to 6 PM, to watch the Scuppernong Polo Club team compete in an exciting polo match. Bring your own simple or elaborate picnic and relax on the sprawling lawns of the pastoral Chukkar Farms & Polo Club, 1140 Liberty Grove Road, in Alpharetta. Grounds open at Noon.

Chukkar Farm and Polo Club owner Jack Cashin will host Polo 101 at 1 p.m. to brief all first time polo fans on the art of the sport. The polo match begins at 2:00 p.m. Between chukkars, enjoy stomping of the divots, a live auction, music, children’s activities and contest for “best hat”, “best picnic theme” and “best filly in Lilly” vintage Pulitzer that is.

Theatre Background

Now in its 28th season, Theatre in the Square is a professional, not-for-profit organization founded by Producing Director Palmer Wells and the late Michael Horne. As the largest arts organization in Cobb County, the theater reaches 60,000 people a year via five Mainstage shows, two Alley Stage shows, two holiday shows, a summer show, and two children’s shows (one for elementary-aged children and one, themed around Black History Month, for middle schoolers). It is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of civic leaders from around the metro Atlanta area.

With an annual budget of over $1.8 million, the Theatre draws the majority of its funding from ticket sales, with support from foundations, corporations, city and state government, and individual gifts. The Theatre has 12 full-time staff, and hires more than 140 artists (actors, directors, designers) annually.

Theatre in the Square is a member of Theatre Communications Group, the Atlanta Coalition of Performing Arts, the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce, United Arts of Cobb (a coalition of Cobb County arts organizations), and Cobb County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
