ANW’s Virtual Gala
“Through the Looking Glass” – ANW’s Virtual Gala
A Welcome from Geoff and Julia
Well, this certainly isn’t how we expected 2020 to go! We hope that you and your loved ones are safe, and that you’ve been able to find some glimpses of joy and beauty in your quarantine. Staying entertained and connected to one another at a time like this are a must—which is why we’re so happy you’ve joined us at our first-ever virtual gala! Dinner on Stage this year was intended to take place on the set of Alice in Wonderland, a whimsical adventure that we got to share with audiences for exactly one week before a certain pandemic forced us to close early. In the spirit of Alice and all her curious encounters, we are thrilled to welcome you to our virtual gala, “Through the Looking Glass” (or as we like to call it, “Dinner Online”)! This unique celebration of theatre, community, and arts education takes place from the comfort of your own home. Join us in our virtual lobby or send us a photo of your gala outfit for a chance to win “best dressed;” watch exclusive performances from the cast of Alice while you enjoy a themed cocktail… recipe; celebrate two ANW heroes; and donate to help us raise $150,000 for our education program in the next 48 hours!
Alice is an upside-down magical dreamland where imagination defies reality and madness makes logic. What a perfect play for our times. Thank you so much for joining us, and for supporting education at A Noise Within!
