TORI SAVES CHRISTMAS in memory of a life cut short, this event will raise donations to purchase gifts for foster kids at Christmas. We are once again partnering with Child and Family Charities to make the holidays a little bit brighter for children in foster care in our community.
Tori Saves Christmas is a 24 hour marathon of performances from 9pm Friday December 6 until 8pm Saturday December 7 at
The Avenue Cafe
2021 E Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI
Entertainment will feature improv, independent film, short plays, story telling, karaoke, trivia and more. Not your cup of tea, just wait thirty minutes and something completely different is likely to happen. We currently have a dozen musical acts, films from this year's Capital City Film Festival, Improvisation by professional actors and local favorites, Rico Bruce Wade & Aral Gribble and a whole lot more.
We open Friday the 6th with improv by both professional actors and the Laingsburg Drama Club. Then we go into a musical set followed by local stand up artists until 2 a.m. After that we get really wild with a Drag Pageant featuring regional performers.
The first half of the event is titled Dark Hearts Big Hearts as the language could be a bit more risque. But then from 7 am on the event is targeted for kids and familiies starting with storytelling, kids songs and a little bit about Beatrix Potter in the morning. Then music through the lunch hour and on to karaoke for kids throughout the afternoon.
Then we challenge people's minds with a bit of trivia, dive into more music and then we are in the home stretch and anything goes.
