ANNUAL GALA

 

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the season. The 2016 Annual Gala, Cabaret at The Tropicana, was held on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and featured a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, live music and dancing. The event was chaired by Ann Charters, Caroline Ellerson, Susan Malloy Jones and Jennifer Rust and was hosted by Asolo Rep company member Tyla Abercrumbie. The evening’s entertainment featured the RUMBACOPA Cuban Cabaret Show with Maestro Bobby Ramirez and his 5-piece orchestra, RITMO! Caliente Del Caribe, and a special performance by Marc Koeck, who starred in Asolo Rep’s 2015 fall musical West Side Story. 

Gala proceeds supported the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2015/16 season and our award-winning Education & Outreach 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: March 4, 2017
