Join us for an exclusive evening of celebration as we welcome Saturday Night Live alum Ana Gasteyer for a one night only performance! Born and raised in D.C., Ms. Gasteyer has appeared on Broadway in Wicked and The Threepenny Opera in addition to her six seasons on Saturday Night Live and more recently on Suburgatory, The Good Wife and Grease Live!

Before the performance, guests are invited to join us for a VIP cocktail reception and a three course seated dinner. During dinner we are delighted to honor Arena Stage Board Chair Beth Newburger Schwartz with the inaugural Beth Newburger Schwartz Award, which will be awarded annually to a female leader in the community. Beth was the obvious choice for this recognition, not only for her invaluable work at Arena but for the tireless work throughout her career to promote awareness of women’s role throughout American history.

After the show guests will enjoy a special reception featuring complimentary beer, wine, music, desserts and more.

Space is limited.

All proceeds support Arena Stage’s award-winning Artistic and Community Engagement Programs.
