On Monday, March 7, 2011, New Rep will be holding its very first Premiere Party at the historic Commander's Mansion. New Rep's Premiere Party 2011 is an exciting evening of entertainment to celebrate the announcement of New Rep's 2011-2012 Season. Premiere Party guests will get sneak peek performances of New Rep's upcoming Season, mingle with artists, feast on savory foods, and dance the night away with the stars.
"This year, New Rep is mixing things up by hosting two distinct events for our donors, subscribers, and friends to attend," states Dan Newton, New Rep's Board Chair.
Newton continues, "New Rep's Premiere Party is the first of these events and will be an evening of revelry filled with culinary delights and crowd-pleasing performances featuring New Rep's favorite artists. The second event will be Staging the Next Step, a breakfast fundraiser, which will take place on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Newton. Staging the Next Step will help provide the critical funding needed for New Rep to continue producing Award-winning theatre and be able to expand its well respected education and outreach programs."
New Rep's Premiere Party 2011 begins at 6:30pm with the Preview Party. At this exclusive reception, Preview Party hosts and their guests will gather for half an hour in a personal room at the Commander's Mansion, enjoy champagne, and have up-close access to New Rep's favorite artists.
The Premiere Party will be from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. At the Premiere Party, guests will get sneak peek performances of New Rep's 2011-2012 Season and see highlights from New Rep's current season, while touring the beautiful Commander's Mansion and savoring delicious food from our restaurant partners (ABCatering, Aegean, Restaurant, Edelweiss, 51 Lincoln, Sensational Food, Stellina's, Starbucks, and Wholefoods). Thanks to Premier Bartending & Beverage Service, attendees will also be treated to a fun and festive signature cocktail.
"New Rep's Premiere Party 2011 is going to be the social event of the spring for theatergoers," states Kate Warner, Artistic Director. "Our guests will not only get a glimpse of our Summer Show, The World Goes 'Round, and our upcoming Season, they will see some memorable scenes from this Season's musicals, The Last Five Years and Passing Strange, and get the opportunity to spend an evening partying with their favorite New Rep artists."
In addition, Jared Bowen, the host of WGBH's Center Stage, will conduct a live interview with Will Lyman and Karen MacDonald.
