Featured Entertainment is "Farm! A Musical Experience”
Join the Friends of Theatre at Michigan State University for their ninth annual Gala, supporting the funding of a perpetual endowment for programs and activities for theatre students at Michigan State University's Department of Theatre.
The event will be held Tuesday, May 8, on the Cobb Great Hall stage of Wharton Center for the Performing Arts on the MSU campus. Tickets are available in advance for $75 ($20 tax-deductible) at http://theatre.msu.edu.
Guests will enjoy delicious appetizers, wine, and dessert while mingling with friends, faculty and students of the MSU Department of Theatre. The featured event of the evening will be a production of "Farm! A Musical Experience." This brand new musical was written by MSU students and faculty. During the spring of 2018, the production has been touring special needs classrooms around the state.
The Friends of Theatre Endowment is designed to provide funding for special projects benefitting MSU theatre students, including: The ĭmáGen Musical Theatre Immersion Program with Wharton Center, Summer Circle Kids' Camp and the 4th Wall Theatre Company collaboration. Other projects that may be funded through the endowment include student scholarships, artist/educator fellowships, guest artist and scholar residencies, and special production activities.
Gifts to the endowment can be made in a single payment, as a recurring sustaining gift, or as a pledge in installments. Those interested in contributing to the endowment may contact Joan Mattson at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
