Giving and Receiving at the Historic Music Hall

2006 was a very successful year for the Tarrytown Music Hall: increased programming, generous support (including funds from the state, county, and local governments), and a record amount of sold-out shows!


Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood from "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" The Music Hall will be donating proceeds from auctioned-off tickets to The Historical Society serving Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown.

Tens of thousands of people attended performances by such artists as Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, Brian Regan, The Wailin’ Jennys, The Dave Brubeck Quartet, Jim Gaffigan, and more. Over 30,000 children enjoyed family theater productions and daytime school performances. The Music Hall introduced a resident youth theater program and is proud to be host to three resident companies. Hundreds of children had the opportunity to learn how to sing, dance and act on the theater’s stage.

This Holiday Season, we encourage you to give your friends and family the gift of theater — onstage and off. Gift certificates to the Music Hall’s wide variety of shows are available by calling 914-631-3390. It isn’t every day that one can see Jungle Jack Hanna and his fascinating animal friends live! Or give your child the opportunity to appear on stage in a youth theater production.

It is with great pleasure that we announce our own holiday gift this year: the first two rows of seats for An Evening with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood on March 24 will be auctioned off online. All proceeds exceeding ticket face value and sales commissions will be donated to The Historical Society serving Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown — a great not-for-profit organization working to preserve our common heritage. If the auction is a success, we plan on offering this opportunity to other not-for-profit organizations when the theater has high profile events.

Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, stars of the Emmy-nominated Whose Line Is It Anyway? have teamed up to present an evening of extraordinary improvisational comedy. Using their quick wit, Colin and Brad take contributions from the audience to create hilarious and original scenes — Just like a live version of Whose Line! Throughout the evening, the show becomes truly interactive as audience members are called to the stage to participate in the fun.

The Music Hall is owned and operated by The Friends of the Mozartina, a not-for-profit, educational, and cultural organization. Please remember the Music Hall when you plan your year-end giving. Your generous contribution is needed for increased programming, operating costs, and further preservation of this Landmark theater. On behalf of all of us at the Music Hall, we wish you the happiest of Holidays and look forward to seeing you at the Music Hall in the New Year!
