We feel a song coming on! Yes, on Saturday, October 8th, Dallas Children’s Theater returns to the legendary Venetian Room for its 24th annual Cabaret Gala. Described by The Dallas Morning News as “… arguably Dallas’ coolest arts-related fundraiser!” this stellar evening will once again gather a Standing-Room-Only audience of DCT supporters, Dallas arts patrons, and civic & social leaders at the beloved Fairmont Dallas to raise funds for Dallas Children’s Theater.
And, what could be more fun than an evening full of song, surprises, and shenanigans, sitting at candle-lit tables in the legendary and newly-renovated Venetian Room, sipping champagne, and experiencing an intimate performance by one of New York City’s leading cabaret performers! Last year, featured the “Uber-Talented” Liam Forde, who followed a long line of extraordinary entertainers!
Our 2016 Cabaret Star in her Dallas debut will be New York’s own Irish lass, Maxine Linehan. Words like “versatile” or “multi-talented” do not do justice to this incandescent singer/actress who The New York Times calls “fiercely talented…” As a cabaret and concert performer, she has appeared at NY’s Town Hall, Lincoln Center, 54 Below, The Metropolitan Room, and Birdland. She is a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and also just happens to be a Barrister! There is really only one thing you need to know about Maxine: you have to see her! See attached press!
Along with the performance, we offer the added opportunity to WIN one of FIVE fabulous trips. The Gala 2016 Raffle includes luxury accommodation & travel packages to Cancun, Costa Rica, New York City, Telluride, and St. Martin. 3 of the packages include air travel courtesy of Southwest Airlines! You won't want to miss out on this!
It’s always a “Family-Affair” at DCT and this year’s Gala Chairs all have long family associations with the Theater. The Gala Co-Chairs are Marisa Huckin, serving for her 4th Gala, with Sharon Niebuhr. And, Kerrie Forbes returns as Raffle Chair for her 2nd Gala. Our Honorary Chairs have been steadfast supporters for many years, Jennifer & Peter Altabef joined by son Will who literally grew up on-stage at DCT.
The Cabaret Gala is an after-dinner affair with cocktail hour preceding the performance. Single tickets are $150. Tables start at $1,500 and Sponsorships at $3,000, for reservations or raffle tickets or information, please contact Artie Olaisen at artie.olaisen 'at' dct.org or 214-978-0110 or go to www.dct.org/gala/.
