Popcorn Pays Off for Black Ensemble Theater

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Black Ensemble Theatre is set to receive a check for $20,000 from the Garrett Popcorn Shops. It comes as the lip-smacking result of a previously announced promotion by which Garrett promised to donate 10% of all in-shop and online popcorn tin sales from Feb. 15 to 28 to the Black Ensemble Theater in honor of Black History Month.

The theater's artistic director, Jackie Taylor, will accept the check at a ceremony to take place at 3 p.m. April 2 at the Garrett Popcorn Shop at 27 West Jackson.

The promotional partnership also included the no-purchase-necessary "Stop. Pop. And Win!" ticket giveaway by which visitors to the Garrett website could enter to win two free tickets to BET's hugely engaging new musical, "From Doo Wop to Hip Hop," which runs through April 14 at the Black Ensemble Theater Cultural Center, 4450 N. Clark. For tickets ($45 - $65) , call (773) 769-4451 or visit www.blackensemble.org.
