"This is one of the most important evenings of the year for Moon,"said Co-Executive Directors Daren A.C. Carollo and Daniel Thomas, "and we couldn't be happier to have such an extraordinary talent as Emily Skinner joining us for the event. Moon is looking at one of the most ambitious campaigns in its history as we begin the renovation of the Gateway Theatre as well as a major expansion of our MoonSchool programs."
COME TO THE MOON attendees will revel in a transporting evening of cocktails, fine dining, and superb entertainment at the Palace of Fine Arts. The evening will begin with a catered sit-down dinner in the elegant lobby of the Palace of Fine Arts, featuring a special performance from amazing MoonSchool students and a fund-a-need auction. Patrons will then move into the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts theatre, where ten favorite Moon performers (and special guests!) will preview upcoming shows, including the first public announcement of Moon's exciting 2020-2021 Season! This will be followed by our fantastic headliner, Tony Award-nominee and Broadway star Emily Skinner, who will deliver a once-in-a-lifetime special performance. After the show, the fun continues with delicious desserts, more cocktails, and an afterglow cabaret performance by beloved "Moonies." It is sure to be a spectacular evening, not to be missed!
