Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala returns with an all-new socially distanced format, and it is our hope that you will join us for this spectacular evening!
The event will begin with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a drive-in “movie” featuring Asolo Rep’s greatest moments, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, performance, live music and dancing – all from the safety and comfort of your own drive-in lot! This year’s theme celebrates the 1950s Sock Hop – a lively, informal dance event popular among teenagers during that time. It featured novelty dances and vinyl records playing early rock and roll music. Sock hops bring back an irreplaceable, mid-century nostalgia. Musical entertainment will be announced soon.
All Gala proceeds will support 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.
