ANNUAL GALA

SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 2015 – 6PM

THE RITZ-CARLTON SARASOTA 

CHAIRS

Debbie Haspel, Jennifer Rust, Jenifer Schembri and Janet Walter

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala 2015, An Evening LIVE at The Sands, 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 silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. It will celebrate the glamorous Las Vegas nightclub, the Copa Room at the Sands Hotel, where the Rat Pack and other legendary entertainers performed. Our musical entertainment will feature Vegas’ Rat Pack Tribute Show starring “Frank,” “Dean” and “Sammy” with headliner Mark Verabian and his 6-piece orchestra The Martinis. Labeled as the “Voice of Vegas,” Verabian delivers a 50s and 60s vintage vibe with a fresh and contemporary twist. His Rat Pack Tribute Show has been hailed as the next best thing to seeing the original Rat Pack live in action.

All Gala proceeds will go to support Asolo Rep’s entire 2014-15 season and their 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.
