THE 2015 GLOBE GALA

The 2015 Gala is The Old Globe's premiere fundraising event in support of the theatre's education and artistic programs. The black-tie event will begin with a reception on the Globe's Copley Plaza, followed by a one-night-only performance by Carmen Cusack, who starred in the Globe's world premiere musical Bright Star, on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. After the performance, dinner and dancing to the music of the 15-piece Cab Calloway Orchestra, led by Cab's grandson, Calloway Brooks, will commence on the Globe's Copley Plaza. Giuseppe's Fine Catering will cater the reception and dinner, and valet parking is included in the price of the ticket. Pamela Cesak, Jo Ann Kilty, and Vicki L. Zeiger serve as Co-Chairs for this fabulous evening at The Old Globe.
