by BWW News Desk - Oct 7, 2016

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley announces the launch of the first ever Party of the Decade - an extraordinary evening of food, wine, dance, and an incredible benefit auction. For its inaugural event, TheatreWorks will revisit the decade of its founding: the 1970s. A golden era for art, music, and culture, in the 1970s the world watched John Travolta strut his stuff to "Stayin' Alive," the Steve Miller band inspired San Franciscans to "Fly Like an Eagle," and in Palo Alto, a young Robert Kelley created a play for youth - the first step in creating the nationally acclaimed company known as TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. Party of the Decade will take place on Saturday, November 12 at the Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club, 3000 Alexis Drive, Palo Alto. For tickets ($350 for individuals and $1,000 to $10,000 for tables and sponsorship) visit http://www.theatreworks.org/give/partydecade/ or call (650) 463-7112. (more...)
