Colleen Sorensen, Board Member and co-chair of the Fundraising Committee, said of the event: “Guests can enjoy a night of excellent company, great food and drinks, dancing to live music from a great band, and bidding on all of our incredible auction items. So, if you’re interested in bidding on fantastic jewelry, art and photography by local artists, gift certificates to great restaurants, passes to Lagoon, spa treatments, and so much more- why wouldn't you want to attend? It will be a night to be remembered.”
The fundraiser will benefit SLAC’s Play Development Program. Executive Producers Keven Myhre and Cynthia Fleming said: “We would love to be able to build relationships with Tony Kushner, Peter Sinn Nachtrieb and Annie Baker, the playwrights for next season’s plays, and have them attend their Opening Night and read a new play of theirs for our New Play Sounding Series. We are commissioning a playwright, as well. This fundraiser will also support our Summer Play Festival where theatre, dance and performing artists utilize SLAC’s resources and knowledge as they develop and perform their work.”
