The Cabaret at Theater Square announces Cabaret for Kathy – a benefit performance

August 8th, 2010

PITTSBURGH – The Cabaret at Theater Square will host a cabaret performance benefitting the Kathy Cecotti Memorial Scholarship Fund. Cabaret for Kathy features pieces from productions Kathy directed as performed by her former students.

Just over one year ago, Kathy Cecotti, beloved theatre teacher and director of Thomas Jefferson High School, lost her five-year battle with brain cancer. Kathy taught at TJHS from 1995-2009 and brought joy to not only the classroom, but also the community as she directed annual theatre productions. She was a remarkable teacher who inspired her students and co-workers daily through her dedication, passion for the arts and her undying optimism.

The Kathy Cecotti Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior of Thomas Jefferson High School annually. The scholarship is maintained by TJ Arts, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, which promotes the arts within the schools and communities of West Jefferson Hills.

Join us to celebrate the life of Kathy Cecotti and pay tribute to her dedication to her students and the arts. Cabaret for Kathy benefits the Kathy Cecotti Memorial Scholarship Fund and is produced by Katie Sauter in association with TJ Arts.

Donations to the Kathy Cecotti Memorial Scholarship Fund can be made through checks payable to TJ Arts and sent to: TJ Arts, c/o Karen Suszynski, 220 Orchard Court, Jefferson Hills, PA 15025.

There is one performance scheduled for Sunday, August 8th at 6:00pm. Doors will open at 4:30pm, with dinner and drinks available for purchase.

Tickets are $15.50 and are available by calling the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Box Office at 412-456-6666, or online at
