LISTENERS ! offer a ticket offer with a donation of canned food
It was announced today that Showstoppers! Spectacular Costumes from Stage & Screen, the interactive costume exhibit in the heart of Times Square, will feature a ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ ticket offer for guests bringing canned goods to the exhibit on Tuesday 23rd November, Wednesday November 24, and Friday November 26 from 11 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. All donated canned goods will benefit City Harvest, New York City’s largest food rescue organization, which helps feed more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who struggle to get meals on their tables. Customers who wish to take advantage of this offer must purchase tickets directly at the door of Showstoppers !, at 234 W. 42nd Street (formerly the home of Modell’s).
“As we enter our final weeks at Showstoppers !, we wanted to focus more on the spirit of giving,” said co-executive producer Kevin Duda. “We could think of few better ways than to partner with such a wonderful organization as City Harvest before our doors close on December 5th.”
All canned products must be non-perishable cans with commercial labels that have not passed their expiration date. For the benefit of the Costume Industry Coalition, a new group formed in 2020 to advocate for the survival of New York City’s bespoke costume industry, tickets to Showstoppers! (starting at $ 30.00) are currently on sale through December 5 at ShowstoppersNYC.com.
