SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 2019 – 6PM
THE RITZ-CARLTON SARASOTA
Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala 2019, Vive les Folies Bergère, 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 raffle, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. This year’s theme celebrates the legendary Folies Bergère music hall and variety-entertainment theatre known for its lively and bold acts with extravagant costumes, sets and special effects. It showcased the talents of many great entertainers and became the premiere nightspot in Paris. Our musical entertainment will feature an authentic and captivating Parisian Cabaret Show, along with headliner Tatiana Eva-Marie and her 5-piece Avalon Jazz Band. Tatiana delivers French classics and jazz standards from the 1920s, while the Parisian Cabaret Show will showcase an array of singers and dancers performing choreographed, high-energy dance spectacles.
All Gala proceeds will support the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2018/19 season and our award-winning Education & Community 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.
