Synetic Theater to Host 2015 Benefit Gala in March
On Tuesday, March 3, 2015, Synetic Theater will host a 1950's Las Vegas stylized benefit in Crystal City. Centering on a special performance of Much Ado About Nothing, the event will kick off with pre-show savories and sips and close with a post-show champagne and dessert reception with the artists at the Crystal City Marriott.
Funds raised will help support Synetic Theater's mission to redefine theatre, invest in artists' growth and continue to create unforgettable visceral experiences in all of their productions. Winning 25 Helen Hayes Awards with 94 nominations since 2002, Synetic Theater was recently named one of the top 13 innovative physical theatre companies in the world by Backstage.com. Washingtonian Magazine also named Synetic Theater co-founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili 2014's Washingtonians of the Year.
The event is co-chaired by longtime Synetic supporters and Board Members Angela Fox (Chair) and Allison Foster. Additional committee members include Tricia Paoletta, Becky Dobbins, Tacy Telego, Christy Pino, Julianna Mahley, Marcus Brown, Alan Savada, Sue and Amnon Golan, Karina and Keith Mosser, John and Meg Hauge, Patrick Brown, Timothy Carlton, Keith and Karina Mosser, and Cal Shintani.
