Curtain Call Ball

Curtain Call Ball
The signature fundraiser for Children’s Theatre Company, the Curtain Call Ball is a can’t-miss event for dedicated CTC supporters and friends.

Over the past 30 years, the Curtain Call Ball has raised more than $10 Million for CTC, allowing us to carry out our mission of creating extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire young people and their communities.

This year’s event will raise money for CTC’s Early Childhood programs which integrate theatre arts activities (creative storytelling, expressive movement, dramatic play, songs, puppets and props) with existing early childhood and family programming in community spaces. Through activities that foster self-expression, collaborating and encourage strong imaginations, CTC’s early theatre education workshops build social-emotional, cognitive, and early literacy skills.  A special 20th anniversary tribute to CTC’s Artistic Director, Peter C. Brosius, will complete the program.

With a nod to the glamour and sparkle of the disco era, more than 450 guests will dance the night away to live entertainment by RFactor (formerly Rupert’s Orchestra), dine on delectable creations by D’Amico & Sons, sip on signature cocktails and curated wines, bid on fabulous auction items, and enjoy an entertaining and lively cabaret performance.
