Beyond the Proscenium, the local theatre group that has been presenting original and edgy theatre pieces in The Grid since 1994, is holding its Fourth Annual Fundraising Gala this Saturday, November 3, 2007, and we plan to be there.
The theatre just opened a production of Hecuba & Dido: Love Gone Wrong, a modern "mash-up" of the classic Greek story written and directed by Ann Tracy, and based on Charles Mee's The Trojan Women 2.0. You can support the theatre, eat, get a taster of the show and maybe even buy some art on Saturday.
On gala night, there's a lot going on: the troupe will perform a section of the play, there will be food from Jealousy Catering, performances by local bands the Frets and the theatro-musical Pink Toupee Collective, and a silent auction will feature fine art and spa services.
The fun begins at The Space at 25th and R Streets in the downtown/midtown Grid. The event starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person, including one drink. There is, however, a penalty for not planning ahead: tickets are $10 more at the door. For more information call (916) 456-1600 or email email@example.com to reserve your tickets.
