Announcing ADHDA’s 2012 Jane Barnes Revue

Wed, Feb 15, 2012

A Topsey-Turvey Fashion Show at the ASOC Playhouse on March 31!

Save the Date!

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) is pleased to announce that the second annual, award winning "Jane Barnes Revue" is scheduled for Saturday, March 31. This topsey-turvey fashion show features Astoria's finest males dressed up as Jane Barnes. Mark your calendars because you will not want to miss this ONE NIGHT ONLY event! The "Jane Barnes Revue" will be held at the Astor Street Opry Company (ASOC) Playhouse. The fashion show starts at 7:30 p.m. Doors open 7:00 p.m.

The “Jane Barnes Revue” is sponsored by the Columbia Memorial Hospital (CMH) Women's Center and co-sponsored by the Astor Street Opry Company and Holly McHone Jewelers. The eye popping “cat walk" will feature Doctor Bill Armington of CMH and Jim Coffee of Coastal Family Health Center as they make their debut at this year's event. Additionally, Brett Estes of the City of Astoria, Andrew Bornstein of Bornstein Seafoods, and Jack Harris of Fort George Brewery will be among the "Janes" that will be returning to the stage! But those are only a few of our featured "Janes" to wet your whistle! Check in with the ADHDA Facebook page as our list of celebrity models join our "Not to Be Missed" show!

This delightful, and somewhat scandalous, evening of tiaras and formals took a surprising turn last fall when ADHDA received an "Outstanding Special Event" award for the event at the Oregon Main Street Conference Excellence in Downtown Revitalization awards. This award recognizes excellence in building a strong organizational foundation through volunteer development, fundraising activities, or communication strategies.

And if the excitement wasn't enough! Directly following this tasteful presentation, the ticket price includes a chance to dance the night away at the ASOC Playhouse as you get a chance to meet and greet our beautiful "Janes!”

There is limited seating so be sure to purchase your ticket early. Tickets for the "Jane Barnes Revue" will go on sale on Monday, March 5. Tickets can be purchased, in advance, at Old Town Framing Co. for $25.00 apiece. VIP tickets are available for $50.00 per person and offer special, front row "cat walk" seating. (Cash or check is preferred.) Tickets will also be available at the door one hour before the event time. All proceeds go to support ADHDA.

ADHDA is a nonprofit with a mission of encouraging community involvement and investment in preserving the character of historic downtown Astoria while promoting its health and future. If you are interested in learning more about ADHDA or becoming a sponsor for this fun and wild special event, please contact Downtown Coordinator Blaire Buergler at 503.791.7940 or blaire@astoriadowntown.com.
