If it seems like the Pasadena Playhouse always has something to celebrate, that could be exactly correct. For example, did you know that the Tony Award-winning Pasadena Playhouse, the official State Theater of California, will be 100 years old next year? 

Why not celebrate this year and next?  

Producing Artistic Director Danny Feldman and the 2024 Playhouse Party Committee have announced the “Playhouse Party,” set for Saturday, April 13 at 5 p.m. It’s an evening of entertainment, food, friends, and fun, as you and your theater-living-and-loving friends and neighbors, celebrate and support the Tony Award-winning Pasadena Playhouse. (It was for “Best Regional Theater.”)

As their announcement states, the Playhouse Party is meant to “Redefine our Gala.”

“For one unforgettable night, we bring together supporters, innovators, community partners, creatives, educators, and artists in support of what creates, sustains, and enriches the community—the Arts.”

So one of the best parties of the year will feature cocktails and an auction gallery, a dinner party with guests, artists, and community leaders, along with a very special not-yet-announced performance.

This is all naturally followed by dessert and dancing in the street, right there on El Molino, across from that hamburger place. 

Perhaps you’re a legendary supporter of the Playhouse and all that it does, but you have another commitment that evening? Not a problem, per se, Theater Lover.  A prominently displayed “ovation” is also available for purchase which will be seen at the Playhouse Party and on pasadenaplayhouse.org.

Let’s review: Gala. Saturday, April 13th, 5 p.m. You and your friends. Cocktails. Auction gallery. Special live performance. Dinner. Dancing. Street. Across from burger place. Fun.
