New Years Eve Gala 2017 – Diamonds & Denim
New Year’s Eve 2017 “Diamonds & Denim” Gala is a celebration of the theater’s first anniversary as well as the the community’s overwhelming support, which is validation of the Founders’ dream. In contrast to last year’s gala, when formalwear was in vogue, guests will dress comfortably classy, in concert with the gala’s theme. As Director, Angela Scully quipped, “jeans on the bottom, dressy on top”. No shopping required. It’s a dress code everyone can appreciate.
The evening features two shows in just one night. The Resident Theater Company, RTC, will kick off the festivities with a special presentation of “Broadway in the Borough”. Amazing professional voices from New York and PA will bring down the house down with Broadway favorites, setting a festive mood. Guests will then be invited to browse auction items and enjoy an open bar and delicious offerings from John Serock Catering. Later, the high energy sounds of “New Street Heat” will return for dancing on the stage, welcoming 2018 with a bubbly toast to the new year.
From start to finish, guests will dine on delectable delights – enough for dinner, snacks and dessert. No one will end the night hungry, with food stations and open bars set-up on all three floors. Wine, beer, champagne and a special “Diamonds & Denim” signature cocktail will be on tap along with non-alcoholic options.
Before and during the Gala, auction and raffle opportunities are all about West Chester. Raffle items include a Jane Chalfont shopping spree and diamond jewelry from Sunset Hill and Bove Jewelers. Silent auction winners will enjoy dinner for 20 at a local restaurant paired with a private performance by one of Uptown!s resident companies. Contributing restaurants are Gemelli Artisanal Gelato and Dessert Cafe, John Serock Catering, Mercato Italian Restaurant and Bar, Side Bar and Restaurant and Spence Cafe.
