85th Anniversary Gala
Posted 19 October 2011 12:00 AM by Citi
Citi Center’s 85th Anniversary Gala, hosted by the cast of The Addams Family, is less than a month away! Proceeds from the evening benefit our award-winning arts education programs, the preservation of our historic theatres, and reserves for mission sustainability. Since opening to audiences in 1925 as the Metropolitan Theatre, The Wang Theatre has developed from a movie “cathedral” and home to vaudeville musicals to host of the spookiest shindig this fall.Upon arriving at 0001 Cemetary Lane, ring the gong to be greeted by the Family’s butler, Lurch. Once inside, grab one of Grandmama’s lethal cocktails and be our guest backstage to a history of the Wang Theatre walk-through and experience everything from a 1920’s screening room, showcasing the theatre’s beginning, to observing a 1950’s Broadway Musical dressing room. Next, guests will join the Family onstage for dinner with a gothic Spanish twist, courtesy of Gomez Addams himself, followed by deadly desserts and dancing the night away to ghoulish grooves provided by DJ Ms Thang.Don’t miss out on all the spooky, kooky and delightfully sinister excitement on November 5th! Tickets for the Graveyard Shift After Party are still available. Dance the night away onstage with ghosts of performers past! Hope to see you there in your creepy couture!A special thanks to our Twitter follower @DerekChris72 for the photo of our very spooky event reminder!
