Center Stage 2020

Event Dates

  • Sat Mar 14 5:00 PM


Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Held, literally, on the stage of Meany Hall, Center Stage is a fundraiser to benefit our artistic and educational programming; a thank you to our friends, who receive an exclusive preview of the 2020-2021 Season before it is announced to the general public; and an opportunity to tell the story of Meany Center, the community that supports us and the artists who inspire us.

So get ready to make the scene at Meany Center for the Performing Arts on March 14, and join us for Center Stage 2020 — this year a 1950s-style blast from the past benefiting artistic and educational programs.

  • Flip your lid over a boss performance by pianist Joel Martin — he’s the most!
  • Enjoy a fab meal by Tom Douglas — this cool cat is cookin’ with gas (literally!)
  • Cast an eyeball at our exclusive preview of the 2020-21 Season — you’ll go ape!
  • Raise your paddle and drop some dough in support of education and outreach programs.

5 p.m. | Cocktails | Main Lobby

6 p.m. | Dinner & Program | Main Stage

Complementary parking provided.

Attire: pull out that poodle skirt and dust off those blue suede shoes — costumes encouraged!

This will be our seventh gala, and we’ll have a high bar to clear — each previous Center Stage has been more successful than the one before! For that, we have only you to thank.

Invitations will be going out in January. We hope you’ll join us at Center Stage in March, but even if you can’t, please know how much we appreciate your support of everything we do. You make a world of difference!
