Funds from the Sudbury Theatre Centre event will go to a number of charities

A number of community groups will compete to earn the Sudbury Theatre Centre audience's approval with a variety of sketches they have prepared at the "Celebs and Friends" comedy event.

The winning team each night will get $1,000 to donate to one of 16 chosen charities.

The event, which will run Friday, Jan. 17 and Saturday, Jan. 18, will feature local broadcasters – including teams from CBC Radio, CTV, Hot Radio 93.5, KICX Radio and Rewind 103.9 – who will perform sketches they have prepared, that touch on Sudbury's history, federal politics and the Olympics.

Science North, the Sudbury Police Service, firefighters and Health Sciences North have also prepared teams for the show. Each night will feature different teams and unique sketches. Each show begins at 8 p.m. and costs $30 to attend.

Among the 16 chosen charities are the Elgin Street Mission, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Quality, House of Kin, Easter Seals, the Community Emergency Fund and Autism Ontario.

For more information, or to make a reservation, call the Sudbury Theatre Centre at 705-674-8381.
