Secret speakeasy party benefits two Red Deer non-profits

Museum and Bull Skit provide a chance to charleston for a good cause

Pssssst! The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery and Bull Skit Comedy is inviting you to a speakeasy with a secret on Friday night.

Blind Bull Tiger is a fundraising party involving 1920s finery and live jazz with a five-piece band, featuring saxophonist Troy Davis and special guest singer Mandy McKee.

Bull Skit and Let’s Swing Red Deer will provide the entertainment. There will also be a raffle, food, drinks, and the chance to support two of Red Deer’s cultural organizations.

The museum aims to “reflect the beauty, the complexity, and the rich diversity of Red Deer and area through its interactive displays. Against the Wall Theatre is a non-profit company that focuses on connecting people to the arts. Its local improv and sketch comedy troupe, Bull Skit, has been entertaining Central Albertans since 2008.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. benefit are available from the museum or from www.BullSkitComedy.com.
