The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe encouraged dreamers and student performers at its April Fools Fête fundraiser at Michael's On East on April 3.
The annual event brought hundreds of supporters to the Michael's On East ballroom to mix, mingle and support the theatre company's many productions and training programs.
WBTT founder Nate Jacobs started the program by leading a musical production composed of Stage of Discovery students who danced and sang with the help of a band led by music director Etienne “EJ” Porter.
Dinner was then served. Guests heard from Jacobs and other WBTT figures before it was time for the mission moment and another performance from WBTT students. The night ended with live music and dancing.
