Atlantic Stage has committed to giving proceeds of their opening night ticket sales to local non-profits. Their last production, Boeing-Boeing, opened on October 14th and over $1800 was raised for the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina

The next production, A Christmas Story, opens on December 2nd and the charity of choice is the North Strand Helping Hand. North Strand Helping Hand is a United Way of Horry County agency that serves as an emergency aid organization, which responds to the needs of the less fortunate and homeless in our community. There will also be a post-show opening night reception hosted by Sam's Club. 

If you can't make it to opening night, Atlantic Stage will be a collection site for needed items that can be dropped off during business hours or a performance.
