n June 15, the Emerald Coast Theatre Company was transformed into a “Marvelous 
Manhattan Comedy Club” for one night. The evening, which was a sold out event, 
had a 1950’s era feel to it, where martinis fl owed in New York City’s underground 
comedy club with a swanky upper west side cocktail party meeting a gritty, hilarious 

comedy club. 

The epic comedy theatre event like no other was a benefi t for Emerald Coast Theatre Company. 

The evening activities included a great comedy show, a performance by the Village Belles - a 1950’s 
all girl musical review, and classic cocktails including wine and bourbon tastings. Chefs prepared 
tasty appetizers. 

ECTC Director Nathanael Fisher thanked the sponsors for their generosity and also give those 

who attended the event an insight on the needs of the ECTC and provided insight on how the 
raised funds would be used.
