Broadway actor, singer and dancer Matthew Morrison will headline the 2020 Stepping Out for COD gala – the major fundraiser for student scholarships and services at College of the Desert on March 28.
The event, which is sponsored by the College of the Desert Foundation, will be held at 8 pm at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert Theater.
Morrison is known for his portrayal of Link Larkin in “Hairspray” and his role as glee club director Will Schuester on Fox Television’s “Glee.” He has been nominated multiple times for Tony, Golden Globe and Emmy awards.
On Thanksgiving, Morrison co-hosted “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” on ABC. His McCallum performance will coincide with the release of his latest album, “Disney Dreamin’ With Matthew Morrison,” in partnership with Walt Disney Records.
Proceeds from Stepping Out for COD directly support student success by providing students with emergency funds, food, textbook and childcare assistance, veterans support services, and more.
Tickets will go on sale January 6 and will run between $75 and $150. They may be purchased through the McCallum Box Office by calling 760.340.2787, or by visiting the McCallum’s website.
