Le Petit Theatre Celebrates 100th Anniversary with CURTAIN CALL BALL


As Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré closes out a century of New Orleans theatre, we celebrate this milestone at The Curtain Call Ball gala and fundraiser!

This evening of theatre, music, food, and fun will be hosted at Le Petit Theatre and Dickie Brennan's Tableau. New Orleans Center for Creative Arts' own Jefferson Turner will delight guests in the upstairs Drawing Room with show tunes, while The Peter Harris Trio will perform throughout the evening. Attendees will enjoy an exclusive sneak peek at our season opener, Pippin, directed by Tom Cianfichi.

Guests will enjoy the opportunity to mingle with friends and performers while enjoying delicious food and drinks, including the introduction of Le Petit's Centennial cocktail. This specialty cocktail will be served throughout the year at Tableau, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the theatre.

Last year's inaugural Curtain Call Ball raised over $100,000 to support the mission and programming of Le Petit Theatre. With over 200 tickets sold to this year's event, the theatre is on track to reach its goal of $150,000 raised. All funds raised sustain the theatre's mission into the next century. Guests will participate in a live auction, with items including jewelry, a Broadway vacation package, a meal for 10 at your home created by a Dickie Brennan's chef, and more.

The Curtain Call Ball is coordinated by Le Petit Theatre's Event Chairs: The Honorable Jacquelyn B. Clarkson, Honorary Chair; Nancy Ellis and Cynthia Weinmann, Co -Chairs; Kathleen Van Horn, Development Committee Chair. Mainstage Sponsors include Dickie Brennan's Tableau and The New Orleans Advocate. Red Carpet Sponsors are Mrs. H.
