Sierra Rep to Host LES MISERABLES Brunch, 4/6
Sierra Repertory Theatre continues to celebrate the start of its 35th Anniversary season with its first-ever Directors Brunch.
The brunch, set for April 6 at the Black Oak Casino Resort Hotel banquet room, is designed to give audience members an idea of how SRT went about staging Les Miz, one of the biggest productions the theatre has undertaken so far. The theme will center around all things French, in honor of the setting of Les Miz. There will be champagne and other cuisine de France, including pastries and cheeses. After the meal, there will be a question and answer session with SRT's Producing Director Dennis Jones and guest artists before guests make their way to the East Sonora Theatre for the 2 p.m. show. Brunch-only tickets are available for those who wish to attend a different performance.
SRT Special Events Coordinator Judy Stoltenberg got the idea for the brunch when she noticed tickets for this year's opening night gala, always a popular event, going quickly. She figured it was a combination of two extraordinary things: Les Miserables coming to a local stage and the opening night of SRT's 35th Anniversary season.
"It's an exciting experience," she said of Les Miz, the world's longest-running musical. "Plus, it's exciting to celebrate a milestone anniversary."
The opening-night gala, which occurred Saturday, March 1, sold out, but tickets for the brunch are still available. Cost is $80 per person, $50 for season ticket holders, or $50 for brunch only. A VIP table for eight is available for $900.
