An array of theatre stars–including Tony Award-winners Jason Alexander and Tyne Daly–will take part in “Building It Together,” a Los Angeles benefit that will take place at the UCLA Freud Playhouse on October 22nd at 6 PM.

“Building It Together” will benefit Camelot Artists, the resident company of the Beverly Hills Playhouse. In addition to Alexander (“Seinfeld,” Jerome Robbins’ Broadway) and Daly (Rabbit Hole, Gypsy), the evening will feature the talents of Wayne Brady (Chicago), Tony Danza (The Iceman Cometh), Michael Feinstein, Jorge Garcia, Sally Kellerman, Dale Kristien (The Phantom of the Opera), Larry Miller, Michael Pena, Doris Roberts, Ray Romano, Camille Saviola, Lea Thompson (Cabaret), and Bruce Vilanch (Hairspray). David Galligan will direct.

“The funds raised from the event will be used to upgrade Camelot’s theatre facilities, establish a substantial operating budget for year-round ongoing productions and create a start-up fund for Arts in Action, Camelot’s outreach program designed to bring creative arts to Los Angeles elementary, middle and high school students who might not otherwise be exposed to it and by so doing strengthen our own community,” according to notes on Camelot Artists’ website. A pre-show silent and live auction of more than 200 items, as well as a post-show gala reception, will accompany the performances.

“Founded in 1983, Camelot Artists is the non-profit theater company of the Beverly Hills Playhouse – its mission being to take the renowned work of the BHP classes and create theatrical productions that contribute to LA’s vibrant cultural life.”
