SYRACUSE STAGE GALA POSTPONED

In keeping with best practices for the current health situation around COVID-19, the April 24 Gala is currently postponed. Stage is exploring alternative options, including a possible virtual event. 
 
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time of constant change, and as always, but now more than ever, we appreciate your support of Syracuse Stage. Your efforts and contributions are not only an investment in great theatrical productions, but an investment in our community - local staff and artisans, local economic impact, and vital arts engagement for the many youth and families served by Stage.

SYRACUSE STAGE GALA

Join us for the 2020 Syracuse Stage Gala and have a roaring good time!

This year we’re going for some good, old fashioned fun and hosting the Gala at the Marriott Downtown Syracuse.  The evening will start with an open bar cocktail hour, then transition to the Grand Ballroom for delicious food, an incredible silent auction, and exciting casino games!  Guests can dance the night away with music by local band Prime Time Horns with special guest Ezekiel Andrew, who played Beast in Syracuse Stage’s recent production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  
 
All of the proceeds of the evening benefit Syracuse Stage’s artistic and educational programming.  So not only do you benefit, but so does our community.  We’re proud of Syracuse Stage’s contribution to CNY’s cultural vitality. Join us for the 2020 Gala and keep Syracuse creative…and fun!
