Musicians, Voice Actors and Sound Effect Artists Bring Magic to Classic Animation Film Gulliver’s Travels in Benefit Fundraiser for Richmond and Sunnyside Neighborhood Associations
On Sunday, September 19, 2010, the Richmond and Sunnyside Neighborhood Associations and Filmusik will present a special showing of the 1939 animation film classic Gulliver’s Travels at the Bagdad Theater for a fundraising benefit for the two neighborhood associations. A very special feature of the film is that the entire soundtrack to the film will be recreated live through a 20 person crew that will include 4 cartoon voice-over actors, sound effects (Foley) artists, and the Filmusik Chamber performing an original music score – – every line, song, and sound from the movie will be recreated live in front of the audience.
Filmusik presented this production for a 4-night run at the Hollywood Theater to rave reviews. Due to the immense popularity of the Hollywood shows, the Sunnyside and Richmond Neighborhood Associations will reprise this production for one more night — don’t miss it. McMenamins is donating the use of the Bagdad Theater for this benefit fundraiser. Tickets will be $10. Buy Now!
