This special one one-night event is back! Long Beach Playhouse and Held2gether, Improv for Life, are partnering for the 6th annual “Miracle on Anaheim Street”, a holiday variety improv show to benefit WomenShelter of Long Beach (WSLB), a local nonprofit domestic violence agency.
This is surely not an evening to miss as this show only happens once a year! Taking place at the beautiful, landmark Long Beach Playhouse Theater, “Miracle on Anaheim Street” brings together the community and the talented performers of Held2gether for an incredible live show. “This event is very special to all of us here at Held2gether as it marks the beginning of the holiday season for our troupe and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than to support the very important work of WomenShelter of Long Beach”, says Darren Held, CEO & Creative Director of Held2gether, Improv for Life.
The proceeds from this show go directly to WomenShelter of Long Beach and supports their many programs
including services for survivors of domestic violence including supportive housing, as well as their prevention education services for youth and the community. “This is truly one of my favorite holiday events! Each year the performers host an amazing show. Everyone always has such a good time and leaves with so many good memories! WomenShelter feels extremely thankful to have the support of both Held2gether and the Long Beach Playhouse. They are wonderful friends and community members,” says Mary Ellen Mitchell, WSLB Executive Director.
