NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Academy Award Winner Allison Janney will take the stage at a Mississippi theater in a fundraiser for the venue’s restoration project.

The Natchez Democrat reports stars from the upcoming film “Breaking News in Yuba County,” have volunteered to be in a production at the Natchez Little Theatre on Saturday night.

The film was filmed in Natchez and stars Janney, Mila Kunis, Awkwafina and Regina Hall. The event will feature Janney and a few “surprise” guests.

Representatives from the theater’s board of directors say the proceeds would be used for funding youth programs and multiple restoration projects, including a remodel of the theater’s Mayweather Hall. Representatives say they hope to raise $350,000 and have already received donations from “all over the world.”
