We’re All In This Together! by Julian Wiles

Tonight our 13th Annual Gala, Dinner and Auction takes place at Gaillard Auditorium.  Below you can see some of the 40 performers that will perform a salute to Movie Musicals as part of tonight’s festivities.   Our Resident Music Director Wendell Smith created the special arrangements for his 5 piece band that will be rocking the Gaillard Tonight.  Selections from Mamma Mia, Hairspray, My Fair Lady, Phantom of the Opera and Disney’s High School Musical will light up the stage.  Directed by Marybeth Clark this showcase of Broadway and Silver Screen Showtunes features  Charleston Stage’s Six Professional Resident Actors,  members of Charleston Stage’s Acting Ensemble and over 30 students from Charleston Stage’s Education Programs.  Over 350 Supporters of Charleston Stage will gather for a three course meal provided by 14 of Charleston’s Finest Restaurants, and watch these dazzling performers showcase the amazing range of talent Charleston Stage provides to the community.  With ticket sales making up only 47% of our annual budget, these generous donors and key contributions to the $750,000 that Charleston Stage must raise each season, support our productions and education programs.
