What: Theatre Under the Stars "Behind the Mask" gala.
Where: Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
The 411: Broadway star and musician Adam Pascal of Rent fame shared familiar Broadway tunes and songs from his third solo album, Blinding Light, with the more than 350 TUTS supporters. He concluded his performance with a rousing rendition of "Seasons of Love" from Rent, joined on stage by students from TUTS’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre.
The event raised more than $517,000 for TUTS' education and community outreach programs, thanks in no small part to chair Dan Domeracki.
Purple and gold decor by Todd Events transformed the Hobby Center lobby, providing the perfect backdrop for the numerous guests who donned a variety of colorful masks in a nod to the theme.
Who: City councilman and mayoral candidate Stephen Costello and wife Debbie, Amy and Rob Pierce, Sofia Adrogué and Sten Gustafson, Lisa Foronda and Greg Harper, John Breckendrigde, Bruce Lumpkin, Helen and Jim Shaffer and Meredith and Raffi Tcholakian.
