Bite Size Plays July 31 at the REP Benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge

July 25, 2014 by SoWal Staff

The Repertory Theatre at Seaside has some tail-wagging delights to benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge. On Thursday, July 31, a performance of Seaside Shorts - a ‘bite-sized’ collection of short plays - will help raise money for the Freeport-based animal shelter, the area's only “no-kill” sanctuary – and currently home to more than 250 animals.

“We have enjoyed a fun-filled season,” said The REP’s Executive Director, Brook Stetler. “What better way to enter the ‘dog days of summer’ than to add a performance that will benefit a cause we are all so happy to support.”

Seaside Shorts is a collection of five short plays by established and emerging playwrights and is performed at a fast pace by the cast of The REP, the Gulf Coast’s leading professional theatre company.

“We are thrilled The REP has offered to help us raise vital funds for the refuge,” said Jill Tanner, Director of Development for Alaqua Animal Refuge. “We look forward to working with The REP to not only raise funds, but awareness for our cause.”

More information and tickets for the Alaqua Benefit Performance are available online at or by calling The REP box office at 850-231-0733 or visiting Seaside Meeting Hall Theatre, 216 Quincy Circle, Seaside, FL 32459.
