Circle Theatre Presents HOLIDAY PUNCH Fundraiser
A new tradition is coming to Circle Theatre in a holiday celebration show with an inspired twist. The audience sparks the scripts and performances based on their personal stories, ideas, or wishes.
Beginning September 18, Patrons and Art lovers alike will have the opportunity to commission a personally assigned playwright to interpret one of their favorite holiday memories as an artfully imagined two- to three-minute monologue. Like tales told 'round the family table over the years, these stories may be true to life, slightly embellished ... or as full of holiday spirit as your favorite uncle. Then, invite your circle to our Circle for a casual, fun and relaxed celebration of holiday stories (including yours).
In addition to the showcase of monologues, performed by seasoned local actors, the event will feature multiple prize drawings, hors d'oeuvres, wine, craft beer on tap, and musical entertainment in our theatre space.
Playwrights Steven Dietz, Joe DiPietro, Tom Dudzick, Allison Gregory, Michael Hollinger, and Del Shores have agreed to write for the event.
The monologues can be gifted in a variety of ways! Buy one for your favorite Aunt, or rally the staff together to roast the Boss!
Tax deductible monologues can be commissioned for $2500 and come with 4 seats.
Single tickets to the event can be purchased for $50 beginning September 18th.
Purchase a side section row for $300 (7 seats) or a center section row for $500 (13 seats).
This is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind opportunity; a limited amount of monologues are available.
Purchase tickets to the event by calling Circle Theatre's box office (817.877.3040). Contact the box office or email firstname.lastname@example.org to commission a monologue.
All proceeds from the celebration will benefit programming for Circle Theatre - a gift that will help continue downtown Fort Worth's vibrant tradition of live theatre.
