The Lantern Theater Company of Philadelphia has organized a toy drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.

The toy drive will be hosted all during the run of “The Foocy,” Anthony Lawton’s world premiere puppet comedy. Toys will be collected in the Lantern’s lobby until Jan. 1, during regular business and performance hours.

“When we were considering the beneficiary of our toy drive, we did not have to look any further than the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia,” said Lantern Managing Director Karyn B. Lyman. “It is our hope that patrons attending our production of “The Foocy” will join the Lantern’s staff and Board in supporting the boys and Girls Clubs with a toy donation.”

“The Foocy” is the story of a malodorous witch who roams the Russian countryside with her golem, making trouble wherever she goes through the use of puppets, masks and music. This play is suitable for both adults and children alike and tickets range from $14 to $28. “The Foocy” will run until Jan. 1, 2006.

Single ticket buyers that donate one new, unwrapped toy will receive $5 off their ticket purchase for “The Foocy.”

For more information, contact The Lantern’s box office at (215) 829-9002 or online at www.lanterntheater.org.
