Improvise: A New Story

Our reimagined 2017 gala, was held throughout our newly-renovated theater on Saturday, June 3. Improvise: A New Story was a one-of-a-kind experience, a feast of performance, food and drink. Guests were invited to choose their own creative adventures over the course of the evening.
