STURBRIDGE — Members of Stageloft Theater have donated the proceeds of their annual New Year's shows to charities for the last decade, but this year's shows will have an especially meaningful purpose.

Lisa Glasheen, an actor and stage manager who has been a member of Stageloft Theater for 10 years, suffers from Stage 4 cancer that is spreading throughout her body. Doctors are not optimistic that she will survive the illness, and what should be a happy holiday season for her two children, ages 12 and 17, has been devastating.

"The last few months have been very hard on Lisa's family and all of us at Stageloft Theater," said Ed Cornely, who owns and directs productions at the theater. "She is a member of our family, and we decided to donate the proceeds of our New Year's shows to benefit the Glasheen Family Benefit Fund."
