Lisa Brescia, Robert Creighton and More Set for TACT's 20th Anniversary Spring Gala, 4/29
TACT/The Actors Company Theatre, the critically acclaimed company recently named "Company of the Year" by The Wall Street Journal, will celebrate its 20th Anniversary of presenting "neglected or rarely produced works of literary merit" at its annual Spring Gala on Monday, April 29th at The University Club (One West 54th Street). The celebratory evening will kick off at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. TACT company member Simon Jones will serve as master of ceremonies and introduce the evening's entertainment and live auction featuring celebrity auctioneer David Silverman - which includes VIP tickets to the 2014 Australian Open and tickets to the 2014 Olivier Awards in London.
During the gala celebration, TACT will look back over the company's past twenty years, reflecting on its trajectory from a group of actors presenting concert readings, to its present state as a much beloved and respected Off-Broadway company in residence at The Beckett Theatre, as well as a look forward to what the future holds. There will be an original musical tribute directed by Nick Corley performed by special guests including Karen Mason, Christopher Sieber, Jeffry Denman, Lisa Brescia, Robert Creighton and Mara Davi. Jano Manielli will serve as the evening's musical director.
In addition to the live auction that will take place on the evening of the Gala, TACT has set up an on-line auction with BiddingForGood, a web site that supports charities and non-profit organizations. The auction, open to everyone, includes items ranging from vintage jewelry and gourmet food, to a Cape Cod getaway and tickets to NY Yankees games. Please visit www.tactnyc.org. All proceeds from the auction go directly toward supporting the company.
Tickets for the gala evening are $500. To purchase tickets, please contact TACT at (212) 645-8228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
