Adia's Blog: Gala-Riffic!

Question of the day: Is it Gah-lah or Gay-Lah? Either way, it's a really good time. If you have never been to an Opening Night Gala at Lyric Arts, it is definitely something you have to experience.  The gala for Footloose was my first major event at Lyric Arts and it was awesome! Great food, fun people, and, to top it off, an awesome show!

If you don't know, the Opening Night Gala takes place before the opening night performance of every regular season show at Lyric Arts (duh). Guests are treated to heavy appetizers and bottomless drinks upstairs in our dance studio where they can mingle with others and listen to music in a fun, party atmosphere. Footloose featured 80's music...extra fun.

At intermission, Gala participants have a VIP line at the wine bar to top off their beverages. They are also invited back to the wine bar after the show to enjoy dessert with the cast and crew. And if "dessert" doesn't catch your attention, I will add that it is from local Anoka business Truffles and Tortes. Ladies and gentlemen these are not pieces of cake that we are serving, they are little slices of heaven. The price of participating in our 2011-2012 galas is only $18 over the price of your ticket.
