A Night in Venice

October 8, 2022

The Hotel Hershey

Join us for “A Night in Venice” as we transform the Hotel Hershey into a Venetian Plaza to celebrate the America’s Oldest Summer Theatre in our Ruby (95th) Anniversary on Saturday, October 8, 2022.

The Gala is our largest fundraising event of the year, providing financial support to our one-of-a kind Touring Outreach Program that impacts 7,500 students through theatre in schools, our Professional Summer Internship Program that provides a rare paid, hands-on job training to early career actors, technicians, and administrators, as well as provide accessible live theatre opportunities for under-resourced children throughout Central PA.

The evening includes exciting silent and live auction prizes, Mediterranean passed hors d'oeuvres, and the choice of a delicious Chicken Roulade or Brown Butter Gnocchi for dinner followed by dessert.
