Stage and screen star, Kristin Chenoweth was scheduled to perform at the Lutcher Theater in March, but with the Sabine River rising, the theater was forced to reschedule her date. She graciously agreed to reschedule for June 14, tweeting, “Keeping everyone down in Orange, TX in my prayers. @lutchertheater hope everyone stays safe with family and friends. See y’all soon!”

During the same week in March, the Humane Society of Southeast Texas suffered a devastating fire that resulted in loss of pets and caused major damage to their facility. Just weeks before, Lutcher patrons had collected and donated a record 3.5 tons of pet food during the run of the musical Annie. All of the pet foot donated was destroyed in the fire.

As a result of these recent events, and in appreciation to its patrons for their generosity, the Lutcher Theater is teaming up with Kristin Chenoweth to raise funds for the Humane Society of Southeast Texas to aide in recovery from this tragic loss. For every balcony seat sold in May and June for the June 14 Kristin Chenoweth performance, the Lutcher is donating $20 to the Humane Society. Ms. Chenoweth, a longtime supporter of Humane Societies will be promoting the Lutcher’s efforts.

Further contributing to the cause, Lutcher Board Member, Scott Ballard and his wife, Rita have pledged to donate to the Humane Society, $5 for every balcony ticket sold and $10 if the performance sells out. Others who wish to pledge donations should contact the Lutcher Theater Box Office at boxoffice@lutcher.org.
