"Centerstage provides critical funding so that DTC can fulfill its mission of both high quality theater and significant community outreach," said Chair Ann Hobson. "But the gala is also a really fun party! This year we are utilizing the innovative and imaginative production talent at DTC to create what promises to be a very visually exciting evening."
Adam Pascal's credits include originating the role of Roger in the Off-Broadway, Broadway, and London productions of Rent. He also originated the role of Radames in Disney's Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice. Adam played the final Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall production of Cabaret. Other highlights include co-producing the Off-Broadway hit Fully Committed, co-starring with Jack Black in School of Rock, performing alongside Queen's Brian May, and starring as Freddy Trumper in Chess alongside Josh Groban and Idina Menzel. Adam has 3 solo recordings Model Prisoner, Civilian and Blinding Light, all available on iTunes.
"We are so excited to welcome Adam to DTC. He is such a fun entertainer and I know he will love performing in the Wyly Theatre to a crowd that is ready to rock!" said DTC Board Chair Rebecca Fletcher.
Centerstage 2014 will begin at 6:30pm with a cocktail hour followed by delicious dinner, a special performance from Pascal and an after-party of live music and dancing with Cuvée.
