We are reaching out to our community to help raise funds to support one of our Playhouse performers and family members, Scott Evans. He is 47 years old and has been married for almost 20 years to Alison Evans, brother of Richard Evans, and cousin of costume designer Dan Hill. Scott has an aggressive stage 4 kidney cancer that is rapidly spreading. He has chosen hospice over chemotherapy.
Scott is unable to work and the bills are mounting up. Alison is out of sick leave time, so when she needs to take Scott to medical appointments, etc. she receives no income. Scott & Alison need our help now. His family has set a GoFundMe page to receive any donations.
An account was also established at LAUNCH Federal Credit Union to help Scott and Alison pay their everyday bills. If you are able to help them in any way, you can just reference Scott Evans benefit account at any branch location.
Please, if you are able to contribute, any amount will be greatly appreciated by the family!
Thank you for your support and continued prayers.

Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming's children's book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find "Truly Scrumptious".
