It’s time to break out that fabulous red dress and shoes!
The Red Barn Theatre will hold its annual fundraising Gala on Sunday, February 18th, and with the title “Red Hot Red Barn Gala”, it certainly sounds like a night to wear crimson.
Now in their 38th season of bringing top-level professional theater to Key West, the Gala is the Red Barn’s only fundraising event of the year. And it’s always a great one.
“We’re theater people,” said the Red Barn’s Executive Director Mimi McDonald. “We like to dress up and pull out all the stops, and have a lot of fun. And given that it’s been a bit cold lately, we thought we’d heat it up with this year’s theme.”
The Red Barn’s Red Hot Gala will be held this year at The Oldest House, 322 Duval Street, from 6 to 9 pm. Tickets are $125, all of which goes toward the general fund that helps make each season at the Red Barn possible. Attendees are encouraged to wear their best red in support of the theater.
Mouth-watering food will be provided by the Iron Chefs, and the Open Bar will feature top-shelf wines poured by UVA, one of Key West’s top wine bars and shops. Larry Smith and Christine Cordone will provide lively dance music, and the Red Barn’s always-spectacular Silent Auction will again feature a wide range of exciting opportunities, including art, jewelry, fabulous trips, and dozens of restaurant, shop, and event gift certificates.
“Ticket sales only provide a portion of our annual operating budget,” McDonald said. “So the support we receive from those theater lovers who come to our annual Gala is extremely important. We couldn’t continue what we’re doing without it. So we hope everyone who has been entertained at the Barn will come out and return the favor and continue to support our efforts.”
Tickets can be purchased at redbarntheatre.com/tickets or by calling 305-296-9911 weekdays after 3 pm. Tickets will also be available at the door. The Gala is underwritten in part this year by Royal Furniture, Spottswood Companies, Design Group Key West, BB&T, Jane Gardner Interiors, Conch Tour Train, and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.
