In East Haddam – enjoy some Karmic Relief

February 15, 2013 Arts & Entertainment, Local News No Comments

SANCTUARY AT SHEPARDFIELDS Karmic Relief poster 2013The Sanctuary at Shepardfields  in East Haddam CT, presents the fourth annual Karmic Relief fundraiser, an evening of comedy on Saturday, March 16.

This year’s event promises to be everything the last three memorable incarnations have been: hilarious creative antics, free-flowing fun mixed with philosophical dreaming about the spiritual path, with all-ages participation from the audience.

We most warmly invite you once again to join with us.

This year promises even more over-the-top fun with our featured act, Kevin Keefe’s One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase.

Performed all over the world to amazed audiences, this circus of crazy clown wisdom emerges unbelievably from a single suitcase: tent, band, lights, the boisterous ringmaster Steve Fitzpatrick, the officious Mervin Merkle, the incredible Bumbilini Family, the Magician to the Stars Clyde Zerbini, and a Keefer-an innocent trying to run away and join the circus.

However, the most important performers are invited from the audience.

The evening will begin with green hors d’oeuvres and drinks and a clown red-carpet preparty featuring the Om-FLY Circus Troupe, followed by Kevin O’Keefe’s circus performance.

Event details

Saturday, March 16 at the Chester Meeting House, 4 Liberty St., Chester, CT. At 6:30 p.m., Clown Red Carpet & Circus Pre-Show; at 7:30 p.m., Kevin O’Keefe’s Circus in a Suitcase; at 9:30 p.m., Hipster Lounge.

Tickets are $25 ($15 for children under age 13) – includes hors d’oeuvres.

You are invited to dress to impress! Wear zany attire and receive $5 discount!

Purchase tickets online using Paypal at this link (see bottom of page for Paypal button).

… or at the Sanctuary, 59 Bogel Road, East Haddam, CT.

Purchased tickets can be picked up at the door the night of the performance.

For more information please call the Sanctuary at 860-319-1134 or email info@oursanctuary.org

What is the Sanctuary?

Proceeds from this event will support the Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) organization, which promotes environmental education and interfaith spirituality.

A solar-powered mini-farm based on a 40-acre community land preserve in East Haddam, the Sanctuary offers sacred space for personal transformation and serves as a community laboratory for learning, healing and living sustainably with wholeness and joy.
