We hope you will mark your calendars for an exciting ‘Broadway Gala’ concert and fundraising event on Tuesday, July 31 at 5pm, featuring the talents of the Thingamajig Theatre Company’s brilliant summer musical cast, performing in a cabaret-style show directed by Boni McIntyre.
It’s part of a special evening to raise funds for Pagosa’s only nonprofit professional theatre that also will include a live auction for unique interactions with the actors, live music by the actors, backstage tours conducted by cast members, and hors d’oeuvres donated and catered by theatre sponsor Alley House Grille. There will be a cash bar with tips going to the cast and crew.
Only about half of the costs of Thingamajig productions are covered by ticket sales. The remainder of the theatre’s funding comes from private donors, business sponsors, program advertising, grants and proceeds from this annual Broadway Gala fundraiser – the most important event of the year to keep the theatre up and running.
Tickets are $100 for this dressy evening event.
Unique auction items
The actors are working on their acts for the cabaret concert and their contributions to the auction — and keeping them a secret surprise for now. A look at the 2017 one-of-a-kind auction offerings gives you a good idea of what very special fun will be available to bid on this year. Last year’s auction included an actor’s serenade at a private party, a brunch with several of the actors at Pagosa Baking Company, a sunrise hike led by two actors, and a personalized cocktail party featuring a drink created just for you.
We know that two of the perennial favorites will be offered again. One is a progressive dinner for 10 people where actors will chauffeur you and your friends to four incredible locations where you’ll enjoy wine pairings, serenades and delicious food prepared by the cast. The other is a photo shoot for four where the actors will do your hair and makeup as you enjoy champagne and chocolate, then provide costumes before you pose with the cast for a very special picture that could be your best Christmas card ever.
“Previous galas have shown that our guests have been surprised and delighted by the evening’s festivities – and especially the clever and creative auction opportunities,” said Laura Moore, executive director and co-founder of Thingamajig Theatre with her husband Tim. “We are deeply grateful for everyone’s support because the five musicals that folks are seeing on stage this summer would not be possible without the funding raised at the gala.”
