Fundraiser Event: The Color Purple

The 1588 Barrington Building Preservation Society is partnering with Neptune Theatre Foundation to present a special performance of The Color Purple: The Musical.

On May 30th, partial proceeds from tickets sold to the performance of The Color Purple by the 1588 Society will go to support our mission of turning the building known as “The Khyber” into an interdisciplinary arts centre.

Here’s a preview of the incredible talent in this show:

Ever since the tenants of the building were evicted in 2014, members of the arts community have been working to make a home for artists, especially those from marginalized communities, in the downtown core. The 1588 Society will make the building accessible, physically and economically, to as broad a community as possible.
