“Old Goats” – a fundraiser for the Community Theatre, and fun….
I looked at the trailer for the movie “Old Goats” above, and I think you’ll get the idea – this is going to be fun. Check it out…here’s more from Jan Bollwinkel-Smith and the theatre:
Star Struck in Friday Harbor: A SJCT FUNdraiser
What do you get when you combine a beautiful Northwest ocean-view property, island gourmet cuisine and a trio of older gentlemen who just happen to star in a made-in-Washington motion picture that you get to watch at an exclusive Friday Harbor screening?
What you get is the Theatre’s summer FUNdraising event on Sunday, July 22 at 2 pm.
The afternoon starts in the Whittier Theatre with a private showing of Old Goats. Written and directed by Taylor Guterson, a native of Bainbridge Island, the film is set in and around Seattle, and is an often hilarious and heartfelt story of three older men who refuse to go quietly into the night of old age and retirement. It features three local actors: Bob Burkholder, Britton Crosley and David VanderWal (David also lives in Friday Harbor and is a SJCT Trustee!), each playing themselves. The film has been seen all across the United States and has won many awards at several film festivals, including the Seattle International Film Festival.
The three “old goats” will attend the screening and will be available afterward to meet with guests. Then the “old goats” and everyone will be shuttled to the home of Roger and Claudia Salquist for a late afternoon and evening soireé, overlooking the stunning San Juan Channel. Delicious food from island favorite Market Chef, champagne, musical treats and dancing will complete this one-of-a-kind gathering. San Juan Island photographer Mark Gardner will also be on hand to help preserve your evening with the stars.
