The New England Browncoats present the 5th Annual "Can't Stop the Serenity" Event at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, MA at midnight on Friday and Saturday June 18th and 19th, 2010.
"Can’t Stop the Serenity" is a global fundraising effort to benefit Equality Now. In the last four years, the New England Browncoats have raised over $20,000, and in total over $500,000 has been raised for Equality Now around the world. You can find more information about the global event at www.cantstoptheserenity.com.
This year, we will have 2 different special nights of events. On Friday, June 18th we will be screening Joss Whedon's award-winning Internet musical sensation Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog featuring a shadowcast performance by The Teseracte Players of Boston. On Saturday June 19th we will be screening Joss Whedon’s 2005 film Serenity. Both events will start at midnight.
Fans of Joss Whedon show Dr. Horrible and Serenity on his birthday to honor him and to raise money for his favorite charity, Equality Now. Equality Now (http://equalitynow.org/) works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure.
In addition to raising money for Equality Now, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Greater Boston Food Bank. In the past four years we have collected over 3,000 lbs. of food for the GBFB. Anyone that brings a donation will be eligible for raffle prizes, including actual props used in the film Serenity.
Admission for each night will be $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show. A special 2-night combo ticket will be available for $25 available in advance only. Tickets will be available starting in May at the Coolidge Corner Theatre Box Office or online at www.coolidge.org.
