Arts For All Gala

Third Annual Arts For All Gala

Saturday, April 13, 2024

Get ready for a Totally Tubular Time!

Join us for a blast from the past with your big hair and bright colors to raise funds for the Arvada Center. Our spring comedy Noises Off is set in the ‘80s and so is our 3rd Annual Arts for All Gala!

The Arts for All Gala benefits the Arvada Center’s arts education programming, as well as our theatre and gallery offerings. Help us celebrate and elevate the human condition through engaging, entertaining and enlightening programs for all.

Grab your Sony Walkman and stay and see the show the night of the gala.  Unless you just purchase a dinner, your ticket to the production is included in your package.


SCHEDULE

5:00 pm: Cocktail Hour

6:00: Dinner, Presentation and Live Auction

8:00 pm: Noises Off Performance

Join us for the entire evening, or just attend the dinner and auction events! Questions? Please contact Taylor Hicks - thicks@arvadacenter.org

Impact

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $300,000, TO HELP US: 

  • Expand our Theatre for Young Audiences and Arts Day program so 90,000 children annually can have access to life-changing arts experiences
  • Share stories that resonate with and reflect the diversity of our vibrant community
  • Provide scholarships for students who want to study music, theatre, dance, and the visual arts
  • Ensure that students can take field trips and supplement their arts education
  • Enable on-site and in-school workshops that build critical-thinking skills, confidence and empathy
  • Spark a love for the arts with 10,000 square feet of free art galleries open to the public every day
  • Keep our theatre ticket prices affordable
  • Make the arts accessible to everyone in Colorado
  • Build our community by connecting through the arts

ABOUT NOISES OFF

Michael Frayn's Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance.

Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and -- of course -- flying sardines!
