HAMILTON's Rory O'Malley Performs At Beck Center's Spotlight Gala

Beck Center for the Arts' annual Spotlight gala will delight and dazzle guests once again at the beautiful and unique Cleveland Grays Armory Museum. The benefit will take place on Saturday, November 10 at 6 p.m. This year's Honorees are Iris November and Rosemary Corcoran, dear friends to each other and to Beck Center. Iris, a longtime supporter and sponsor of Beck Center for the Arts Youth Theater, and Rosemary Corcoran, past board president and advocate of Beck Center will join together, as east meets west to celebrate a common theme of providing art experiences to all people.

"I'm proud to lend my support to Spotlight, Beck Center's gala supporting dynamic arts and performance education programs. This year is even more special, because we are not only celebrating Beck Center's 85th Anniversary of Professional Theater, but also recognizing two of the most dedicated arts champions in Greater Cleveland, Iris November and Rosemary Corcoran." said Spotlight Chair, Mickey Mencin. According to Beck Center President and CEO Lucinda Einhouse, "Arts Through the Ages" is our theme this year since Beck Center for the Arts and its predecessor Lakewood Little Theater have had a such a meaningful impact on the many generations who have come through our doors for dynamic arts education and performances. Through the ages, this organization has stayed true to its patron- and student-centric values, creating arts experiences that are as individual as the people we serve."

Proceeds of Spotlight advance Beck Center's mission to provide arts education, performances, exhibits, creative arts therapies, and outreach programming to the community, which includes people of all abilities and skill levels.This year's event again includes a VIP Reception beginning at 5 p.m. with entertainment provided by Beck Center Alum and Broadway star Mr. Rory O'Malley, dinner prepared by renowned Chef Chris Hodgson, music and dancing by DJ DIVA, and an exciting live auction.
