Round up your friends for what promises to be the summer's ultimate "three-hour tour" - The Gilligan's Island Costume Fundraiser Cruise, a fundraiser for The Actors Studio of Newburyport. No worries about the weather getting rough and a tiny ship being tossed. Although this is a rain-or-shine event, the S.S. Minnow has been upgraded to the 106-foot, 3,600 horsepower Captain's Lady III, with state-of-the-art electronics, life-saving equipment and cruising speed of 20 knots, as well as seating for 100 people.

Expect hors d'oeuvres, dancing with DJ Shelly Cullen spinning tunes and the added bonus of feeling good about supporting The Actors Studio of Newburyport. Come dressed as one of the characters: Gilligan, The Skipper, Mary Ann, Ginger, The Professor and, last but not least, The Millionaire and Her Husband! (Didn't see that coming, did you? But Natalie Schafer, the actress who played Mrs. Thurston Howell III, or "Lovey," as she was known, was indeed a millionaire!) By the way, if you're too young to have seen the "Gilligan's Island" TV show, Google it! Cross-dressing encouraged. What?! We're theater people. What did you expect?

Your support makes it possible for The Actors Studio of Newburyport (501 (c)(3) corporation), a registered nonprofit, to continue its stellar programing of established plays, new original works, readers theater, acting workshops, musical performances, story slams, films, and all the other events you love. Thanks for helping to keep local arts alive!
