The proceeds will also be matched, dollar for dollar by Sean's father, long time San Pedro resident, Corry McDermott.

Faith, a new fan of Sean's, purchases one of his CD's at the event.

The show was wonderful. Sean has an incredible stage presence. He really is a true showman - he worked the audience and all you could feel was love! I hope he comes down to sing again soon.

The turn out wasn't as good as it could have been with a little more time to advertise.

I know we enjoyed value for our entry ticket price!

We love Sean McDermott!!!

Broadway in Belize

Sean McDermott Fundraiser for San Mateo

In a benefit performance for the San Mateo Road Building Fund, the Paradise Theater presented "An Evening with Sean McDermott" on June 10 and 12. The Broadway star celebrated his musical journey with a collection of songs and stories from his roles on Broadway to starring on television and his European tour with Barbara Streisand.

The best way to describe Sean’s performance was like an audience member said, “Broadway in Belize – Fabulous”. Sean is a superb singer and his audience was very much impressed and happy with his performance. The amount of money received from ticket sales and donations towards the San Mateo Road Building Fund was $4,027.55 of which Mr. Corry McDermott (Sean’s father) agreed to match, making the grand total raised for the project to $8,057.10.

“Thank you to all those people who made this a great success,” commented Corry McDermott. “No monies were received by Sean for his efforts by coming here and singing his heart out for the people of San Mateo.”

Broadway Talent Sean McDermott Holds Benefit Concerts for San Mateo

Sean performed many hits.

He was joined onstage by his father Corry McDermott, who matched the funds raised during his concerts in an effort to help the San Mateo project.

    Last week two concerts to benefit the San Mateo Road Building project were performed by Broadway talent and actor Sean McDermott. McDermott, who is no stranger to San Pedro, performed at the new Paradise Theatre at Reef Village.

    Belting out classics from Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, Barbara Streisand (to name a few), and a variety of Broadway favorites, the crowd was entertained through out the evenings.

    The fund raising effort, spearheaded by Sean’s father, longtime San Pedro resident Corry McDermott, was held with the sole intention of contributing to the San Mateo community effort to build a much needed road. Not only were all the proceeds from the two concerts donated to the cause but McDermott SR pledged to match the proceeds dollar for dollar.

    In a letter submitted to The San Pedro Sun, Corry McDermott wrote, “The best word that most of the theatre goers uttered regarding Sean McDermott’s performance at the Paradise Theatre last week was ‘FABULOUS’. The amount of money received for tickets and donations to the San Mateo Road Building Fund was $4,028.55 which included $163.55 from a person’s piggy bank.”

    The letter continued that Corry, who refers to himself as the “Irishman”, was moved to tears when he made the deposit in the amount of $8,057.10 into the San Mateo Empowerment Project Belize Bank account.

    Corry McDermott wishes to thank all those who made the fund raising effort a great success and reminds the public that his son Sean received no monies for his efforts by coming here and singing his heart out for the people of San Mateo.

    According to Corry, “If there are any other piggy banks out there that would like to travel to the Belize Bank we’d gratefully accept them. Anything you give no matter how small or large will come back to you a hundredfold for helping the honest and hard working people of San Mateo to be able to live in peace and dignity.”
