The gala celebration begins at our home at Oakes Center at 6 pm with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Enjoy unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks followed by a gourmet buffet dinner. At 8 pm the Dreamcatcher ensemble will perform an original cabaret in the theater titled "Peace, Love, Dreamcatcher." A silent auction will run throughout the evening with prizes ranging from personal services to unique experiences.
The evening will have a 60s flavor (period dress optional and encouraged), and the cabaret will include songs and performances from the era as well as entertainment from other decades that illuminate the theme. Dreamcatcher’s company, known for its improvisational and collaborative spirit, will create this unique performance for this evening only.
Funds raised at this event help Dreamcatcher maintain its tradition of excellence in arts programming. In addition to our regular season of mainstage productions, cabaret, improv and new play readings, we provide outreach and education programs for students and seniors, as well as internship opportunities for college students and young professionals. Providing an creative home for New Jersey artists is primary among our goals, as is cultivating the relationship between artists and audiences throughout the season.
