Ain’t That Rich – limited, one-night engagement

Ain’t That Rich – limited, one-night engagement
 

We are very excited to announce that our hometown girl is back again to benefit OCP!

Kate Robards will perform her show, “Ain’t That Rich” for one night only- Saturday, September 15 at 8pm at the Orange Train Depot. We will be hosting a silent auction and serve hor d’oeuvres and wine before the performance. All proceeds will assist us with rebuilding efforts at our new location.

This is a limited, one-night engagement and only 120 tickets are being sold. Tickets are $50/each and can be purchased from by clicking here or locally in Orange at Lookin’ Good Salon. See you there!

“We are thrilled, not only that a dear friend of OCP is performing her show for us locally, but that she is again so graciously offering up the proceeds to benefit our theatre,” says Krystal Smith, Publicity Chair of OCP’s Board of Directors. Robards is a graduate of West Orange Stark High School, Lamar University and California College of the Arts. Robards performed her show “Mandarin Orange” in Orange in 2015, also to benefit the theatre.

About Kate Robards:

Kate Robards is an award-winning writer and performer. She has lived around the world, including Amsterdam and Shanghai, but identifies deeply with Orange, Texas, the small Gulf Coast town on the Texas-Louisiana border where she spent the first twenty years of her life. Her work often deals with the sense of home, rootedness, and identity.

About the show:

KATE GREW UP “POOR.” SHE THINKS HER HUSBAND IS “RICH.” HIS FAMILY SAYS THAT’S NOT A NICE WORD. AS KATE STRADDLES TWO DIFFERENT EXTREME WAYS OF LIFE, SHE REALIZES WHAT MONEY CAN AND CANNOT BUY, INCLUDING THE POSSIBLE SALVATION FOR A LOVED ONE.

Ain’t That Rich was developed with assistance from Solo Sundays at Stage Werx and The Marsh, both in San Francisco. It premiered at Capital Fringe in Washington, DC where it was named “Best of Fringe,” and given 5 stars by DC Metro Theatre Scene. The show won first prize and audience choice at Maui Fringe. An excerpt of the play was published in Luna Luna Magazine. Ain’t That Rich ran at NYC Frigid Fest and Montreal Fringe where it was produced by Really Spicy Opera. The Marsh Theatre in San Francisco produced a seven-week run at the end of 2017. On September 20th, 2018 Ain’t That Rich will be featured at United Solo Festival in New York City.
