THEATER | Fight With Love 2013 

The 7th Annual Fight With Love musical-theater benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will be held this weekend. The student-run event is a manifestation of the commitment of local youth in the theater community to help combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic by telling the emotional stories of victims of the disease, and raising awareness of the ongoing battle within our community. To date Fight With Love has raised more than $18,000 for the charity.

The program features young performers drawn from area high schools or home from college on summer break performing songs from popular musicals such as "West Side Story," "Rent," "Side Show," "Sweet Charity," "Brooklyn," "25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," "Merrily We Roll Along," "Into the Woods," "Godspell," "Follies," and "Newsies."

Geva has donated the space for the performance, donated desserts will be sold at intermission for the charity, and great prizes will be raffled off at the event.

Performances will take place on Friday, August 2, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, August 3, at 2 & 7 p.m.; and Sunday, August 4, at 5 p.m., at Geva Theatre Center's Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd.). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling 232-4382, online at gevatheatre.org, or at the door. Pictured is an image from last year's production, "Guilty Ones."
