Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala 2018, Old Hollywood at Cocoanut Grove, is the biggest fundraiser of the season and it is our hope that you will join us for this spectacular evening!

The event will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, paddle raise, live music and dancing. This year’s theme celebrates the famed Cocoanut Grove lounge and nightclub in Old Hollywood’s Ambassador Hotel – a mecca for movie stars and stargazers. It was synonymous with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Our musical entertainment will feature headliner Warren Priske and his Old Hollywood Jazz Band. Priske delivers classic standards from the 1940s with the style and sophistication that made the swing era so irresistible.

Gala proceeds will support the artists in Asolo Rep’s 2017/18 season and our award-winning Education and Community Outreach programs, which help students develop an appreciation for the arts while gaining empathy and insight into the lives of others through experiencing, discussing and creating live theatre.
