Kritzerland New Online Free Concert 7/12 With Norm Lewis, Emily Skinner and More
For the 107th Kritzerland show, Kritzerland stays home once again with another talent-packed, song-filled show – “Kritzerland Influencers.” The free benefit show will feature classic theater and film songs, some rarities, and a few songs that might be completely unfamiliar. It’s an eclectic mix performed by an amazing cast. As with the past two online shows, this one will benefit Save Our NoHo Theaters. North Hollywood, CA has one of the most thriving theater/art scenes anywhere, and the theaters and companies have been hit very hard and this is a chance to help them. All donations are tax deductible.
Join Kritzerland on Facebook on July 12 at 5:00 PST/8:00 EST for some laughter, some romance, maybe even a tear or two, with some of the best talent around. Kritzerland is produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Doug Haverty, with musical direction by Richard Allen and technical expertise of Hartley Powers.
