July 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
One event on July 3, 2018 at 7:30pm
The 14th Annual Moose Island Follies, EAC’s spectacular fundraiser, will be held at 4 pm and 7:30 pm on Tuesday, July 3. The action-packed variety show will include music, theater, comedy, and more; this year’s show features Tim Sample, well known New England humorist, as master of ceremonies. The lineup of talent includes a mix of new acts and old favorites from near and far, including acoustic/indie cover band 29 and Holding from St. Stephen, New Brunswick; harmony-loving duo The Pink Capos (Penny Guisinger and Kara McCrimmon) from Trescott; Dan Allcott and family band from Cookeville, Tennessee; Celtic harpist Valerie Goldin from Nova Scotia; and many more.
This year’s follies were made possible by generous sponsorship. Our top-tier sponsor is The First National Bank. Second-tier sponsors include Border Electric Inc., Samra Kuseybi with The Christopher Group LLC; Peter J. Repole Dentistry; and Rossport-by-the-Sea Lodging & Retreat. In addition, Eastport Family Pharmacy is sponsoring a performers’ meal between the two shows.
Special champagne tickets are available which get the viewer a front row seat, a free chance at the raffle prize, a glass of bubbly beverage and tasty hors d’oeuvres served at their seat while they enjoy live pre-show music. Proceeds from the follies support EAC’s year-round programming for all ages. Champagne seats are $30; reserved seats are $20; general admission is $15 and attendees 17 and under are admitted for $5. Tickets are available for purchase via the EAC website, eastportartscenter.org, or at the EAC box office one half hour before each show. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and at www.eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible.
