Olney Theatre Center's Annual Gala

We hope you can join us on April 22, 2023 at 5:00 pm as we come together to celebrate the arts! The evening will commemorate the accomplishments of John Kander and Fred Ebb, as well as our opening night of The World Goes 'Round

 

Honorary Gala Chair
Cathy S. Bernard 

Gala Committee Chairs
Mita Schaffer and Tina Martin

The evening will start with a special cocktail reception and dinner on our tented Omi's Pavilion. Guests will then join us in our Mainstage Theatre for the opening night of The World Goes 'Round, a co-production between ArtsCentric, Everyman Theatre, and Olney Theatre Center. Kevin McAllister directs this tribute to the legacy and careers of John Kander and Fred Ebb. The show explores their overriding faith in humans to persevere through good times and bad, and includes iconic songs from ChicagoCabaretZobra, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and many more!
