Oddfellows Playhouse is throwing the party of the season. Anyone who can't take a trip to Rio and is looking to escape the cold can celebrate “Carnaval” at Oddfellows on Saturday, February 2 from 5-8 pm.

The evening will include live reggae and Caribbean music, international hors d'oeuvres and wine, a silent auction, and a live auction with dozens of fun and unusual items. Throughout the evening, members of Oddfellows Traveling Circus will dazzle guests with juggling, stilting, and acrobatics. “Carnaval” is a perfect opportunity for anyone interested in supporting the activities of the Playhouse to wear their brightest colors and finest feathers during the dreariest time of winter.

Although invitations to “Carnaval” have been extended by mail, the public is invited. Tickets are $30 per person; sponsor tickets are $75; premium sponsor tickets are $150. Snow date is Saturday, February 9.

Oddfellows Playhouse is located at 128 Washington Street in Middletown. More than a youth theater program, Oddfellows aims to make a difference in young people’s lives, using the performing arts as a vehicle. Anyone interested in receiving an invitation to “Carnaval” or more information about Oddfellows can call (860) 347-6143.
