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 $11 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, we are focusing our fundraising efforts on supporting our ACT Pass program. ACT Pass participants include over 1,000 households in our community who experience economic disparities and hardship. The goal of the program is to eliminate barriers and allow everyone to experience high quality theatre performances. ACT Pass-holders are eligible for subsidized, $5 tickets to every production and automatically qualify for scholarships to our Theatre Arts Training classes and camps. During the 2018 – 2019 Season alone, CTC subsidized $200,000 in tickets to public performances.

Join more than 400 guests to behold a magical night of electrifying entertainment, culinary creations and fantastical fundraising. Every moment will be filled with an experience unlike any other including an all-star cabaret performance and a dazzling after-party featuring the music of Dr. Mambo’s Combo!

Cocktails, small bites, and a silent auction make for an enchanting opening act.

Dinner and a dazzling cabaret precede a rousing live auction.

Indulge in sweetnesses, libations, and dancing with spellbinding melodies from Dr. Mambo’s Combo.

The bright lights start to fade as the night comes to a close.

Your finest & most fanciful formal attire is requested for proper celebration.
