The Curtain Raiser

September 15 @ 6:00 pm

| $75

Event Navigation

Together we’ll “raise the curtain” on the 2017-18 season and enjoy a sock hop to celebrate the opening night of Grease! Proceeds from TCR’s annual Curtain Raiser support “Spotlight on Kids”. This important program makes the experience of live theatre available to all youth.

50’s-style dress encouraged – show off your best poodle skirt and slick back those locks!

A vintage “Grease” car is the perfect backdrop for outrageously fun photos! Photographer Alisabeth Von Presley of TINT will be shooting event photos all night — but don’t forget to snap some selfies for Facebook and Instagram too!

IMPORTANT DETAILS

  • 6-7:30pm: Social hour
    • Enjoy listening to your favorite 50’s tunes while sampling diner-themed hors d’oeuvres and desserts provided by Wright Touch Catering & Bake Shoppe. There will be signature drinks and complimentary beer and wine — served in your very own 2017-18 TCR commemorative sippy cup!
  • 7:30pm: Raise the Curtain on Grease
    • It’s opening night!  You’ll be the first to see TCR’s 84th season opener, Grease!
  • Post-show Sock Hop
