Annual Gala

SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 2020 – 6PM

THE RITZ- CARLTON SARASOTA
 

CHAIRS

Mary Braxton-Joseph, Tammy Karp, Donna Koffman and Elisabeth Waters


Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the biggest fundraiser of the season, and it is our hope that you will join us for this spectacular evening!

 

The event will begin with a cocktail reception and auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. This year’s theme celebrates Bollywood, the Indian film industry known for its melodramatic plots, colorful scenery, lively music, dance and romance. It’s one of the largest centers of film production in the world and is based in the vibrant city of Mumbai. Our musical entertainment will feature a Bollywood-inspired show with dancers and Broadway performers, along with the Atlanta-based 5-piece Indian band Jashn. Jashn delivers Bollywood classics while showcasing an ancient form of Indian classical music, as well as Garba entertainment touched with modern flavor.    

 

All Gala proceeds will support the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2019/20 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.
