The dinner and silent auction will feature performances by some of the brightest young stars in musical theater in the area, singing songs from the organization’s musicals through the years along with some open mic fun. 

This event is the most important fundraiser of the year for The Performing Project, a five-year-old nonprofit launched and run by 16-year-old Maggie Budzyna. The organization enables disadvantaged kids from Lawrence to attend a free two-week summer theater program, culminating in a professional quality musical, every year. Over the past five years, the Performing Project has staged five plays, including Annie and Beauty and the Beast, engaging more than 350 kids in musical theater. 

Details: Saturday, March 25, at 6 p.m. at the Newburyport Senior/Community Center, 331 High St., Newburyport. Tickets are $30 each, or bring some friends—tables are $240 for eight people or $300 for ten people. For more information or to purchase tickets in advance, visit
