Please join us for the “Feed Me, Seymour Brunch” on Sunday, March 5, in the Merkle Gallery. This popular annual event is hosted come-and-go style, with serving starting at 11:00am and continuing through 1:00pm.
SAAC’s fundraising chair Chrystal Osborn, longtime volunteer Tena Hughes, and their committee have created a tempting and delicious menu for this brunch, held in conjunction with the spring production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” which opens March 3. On Sunday afternoon, curtain goes up on the show for a special matinee performance at 2:30 p.m.
The crowd-pleasing menu for SAAC’s Sunday brunch includes a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar, fruit skewers, ham and cheese rolls, egg salad, pasta salad, sweet treats, coffee and hibiscus tea punch. Also, guests will be thrilled that the hit of past brunches, miniature tomato pies, will make their return to the serving table. The entire event is made possible by dedicated volunteers from SAAC’s board of directors and theatre committee, who give of their time and talents each year to cook, decorate, and serve.
Sponsor Murphy Pitard Jewelers will be on hand during the brunch to display the spectacular Golden Audrey necklace, which they have donated as this year’s raffle item. The custom-designed gold and diamond solitaire necklace features a flower and leaf botanical design, inspired by Audrey II in “Little Shop”. Along with the Golden Audrey, the winner of this year’s raffle also receives a live Venus Flytrap, donated by All About Flowers.
Guests to the brunch have the exclusive opportunity to try on the Golden Audrey, valued at $2400. They can also purchase tickets to the raffle, which will conclude with an onstage drawing at the show’s final performance on March 11. Tickets are $10. Murphy-Pitard staffers will also curate a limited-time jewelry display filled with unique items inspired by flowers, plants, and nature.
Miniature Venus Flytraps in pots painted by SAAC teachers and students will serve as the centerpieces for each table, and are available for $25. All funds raised will support SAAC’s educational opportunities.
Tickets for this delectable brunch are $25 for adults, $10 for kids 6 to 12, kids 5 & under free. For more information, please call the SAAC office at 870-862-5474 or visit the online Tickets to the City box office.
