Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, professional Theatre in Residence at the Oakes Center in Summit, is hosting their annual gala celebration on Saturday, May 11 at 5:30 pm at the Elks Lodge, 40 Maple Street in Summit. This year’s gathering focuses on the important women in all of our lives, and provides a unique alternative or supplement to celebrating Mother’s Day with Sunday brunch.

The evening will begin with cocktails and appetizers at 5:30 pm, followed by a catered dinner at 6:30. At 8:00 pm, the Dreamcatcher Resident Acting Company will perform an original cabaret entitled “Because I Said So!” which will feature songs and readings about moms. At 9:15, dessert will be served, and at 9:45, the winners of the silent auction will be announced. Tickets to the event may be purchased in two ways: for the entire evening ($100), which includes hors d’oeuvres, dinner, the cabaret performance, dessert and the silent auction, or for the performance, dessert and auction only ($30).

Dreamcatcher’s annual gala helps to fund all of its artistic and outreach programming, including mainstage productions, improv comedy, new play readings, a holiday variety show, and outreach programming for students and seniors. It is also an opportunity for the audience and the company to gather in a social setting and celebrate the past year’s work together.

Dreamcatcher’s Mother’s Day Eve Gala Celebration will be held on Saturday, May 11, and tickets may be purchased online at www.dreamcatcherrep.org or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.
