A Red Orchid Theatre celebrated 22 years of ensemble-based theater in Chicago at its annual gala on Saturday, November 8, 2014. The Gala was co-hosted by A Red Orchid Co-founder Michael Shannon and Rockit Ranch Productions CEO Billy Dec and raised more than $100,000 to support AROT’s mission and work. The event began with a VIP cocktail reception and gourmet dinner at Sunda New Asian restaurant and featured live performances from a variety of the company’s productions, performed by members of the AROT Ensemble, as well as a live and silent auction.
The evening continued with an after party and live auction at The Underground. Some of the evening’s top auction items included a week-long stay at a Hyatt Residence Club Resort, Bears tickets, a San Francisco getaway and a custom made AROT bicycle. Shannon’s Man of Steel co-star Henry Cavill surprised guests by stopping by to celebrate AROT’s 22nd anniversary.
