Thank you for joining us for our

Hitchcock Halloween Gala 

The evening, hosted by Christian Stolte, was truly an inspiring night! Whether we were honoring our founding Artistic Director & Chicago firefighter, Guy Van Swearingen, sharing plans for our upcoming youth project, or regaling guests with stories from years past and dreams for the future, one thing was clear: A Red Orchid Theatre is bursting at the seams and we need your help to keep making the fearless theatre we have become known for.

If you couldn’t attend, there is still time to donate!  We are $20,000 shy of our Gala goal and we know it’s possible with your participation. 

 

arot_gala_fb_images_guyPlease consider making a donation in any amount. Now is your chance to directly support the creation of live, risk-taking theatre. As Artistic Director, Kirsten Fitzgerald said, “Live theatre is a radical act of empathy and optimism.  I plan to work harder than ever to take more risks and create more opportunities for connection both on the stage and with our patrons.  I am honored to have all of you working harder along side us to make it possible.”
