Annual Gala

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2021 Annual Gala, Sock Hop at the Drive-In, was held on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at Nathan Benderson Park and

featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a seated dinner, paddle raise, and performance, followed by live music and a drive-in “movie” featuring Asolo Rep’s greatest moments – all from the safety and comfort of individual drive-in lots! The event was chaired by Mary Braxton-Joseph, Tammy Karp, Donna Koffman and Elisabeth Waters. The evening’s musical entertainment featured the 7-piece 1950s band Chrome '57 and the Guest Artist was Ana Isabelle, star of the 2021 Asolo Rep production of Ana Isabelle & Friends in Concert: Stand Back Sarasota! 

 

Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2020/21 season and our award-winning Education & Engagement programs, which help students develop an appreciation for the arts while gaining empathy and insight into the lives of others through experiencing, discussing and creating live theatre.

We thank all those who contributed to the success of this year’s event. We hope to see you at the theatre soon.

SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR: May 7, 2022
