Lee Street Theatre’s third annual Enchanted Evening with Cirque du Vol is May 19 from 7 p.m.-midnight. This live theatre and dinner experience is a black tie optional gala to benefit Lee Street Theatre and its educational programs.
An Enchanted Evening with Cirque du Vol features cocktails, dinner, dancing and live performances including stilt walkers, snake charmers, aerial butterflies, and acrobats during the cocktail hour, and a showcase featuring aerial silks, lyra, trapeze acts, juggling, triple hoops, and more during the after-dinner show. A full bar will also be available.
The money raised will support the 2018-2019 season and LSt’s Community Outreach Program, The My Mind Matters, My Words Matter Tour. The objective of this outreach program is to stimulate an interest in performing arts for area students and to educate them in the use of devised theatre as a forum for ideas and issues related to themselves and to the world around them. Students will work with Lee Street staff to write scripts, create designs and perform their works on the theatre ’s main stage. Playwrights selected to perform their works will be eligible to receive the inaugural Theatre Education Matters Scholarship.
Tickets to the fundraiser are $100 per person. Some tables may be reserved for parties of 8-10. An Enchanted Evening will be held at Lee Street Theatre, 329 N Lee St4. Get tickets at 704-310-5507 or www.leestreet.org
