Before the ECLIPSE; Julia Jones returns home to WFT

Wheelock Family Theatre’s 2010 Fundraiser will feature the first opportunity to meet Julia Jones, a WFT alum, who plays Leah Clearwater in the Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
You may not know Julia…. yet, but our good friend is on the verge of mega-stardom!

To celebrate Wheelock Family Theatre’s commitment to youth, education, and the community, our benefit this year acknowledges the successful career of working actress Julia Jones. Ms. Jones attended classes at Wheelock Family Theatre as a child and performed onstage in Aladdin, Charlotte’s Web, and played Jo in Little Women. Ms. Jones has pursued a professional career and has appeared in a number of independent movies, the television program E.R., and will play Leah Clearwater in the Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Jared Bowen of WGBH will hold an onstage Interview with Ms. Jones on Thursday May 27 at 7:00pm. Tickets will be sold for the interview which will take place at Wheelock Family Theatre. In addition, a Private Reception with Ms. Jones will happen onstage prior to the Interview. The reception will be catered by Choice Events. Books will be available for Ms. Jones to sign.

Ms. Jones has also agreed to attend an exclusive Dinner on the 27th at the South End hot spot, 28 Degrees. This intimate Dinner (for up to 6) will be auctioned off to the highest bidder (minimum bid is set at $2500.) with all proceeds to benefit WFT. Join Ms. Jones, Jared Bowen, and WFT founders Susan Kosoff & Jane Staab, for a bright, once-in-a-lifetime evening with this rising star – an unforgettable opportunity!
