Ladies, it is that time of the year again when you get to gather your friends and get ready for a wild night at Center Place’s 27th Annual Wild Dame Night. This fun and fabulous event will take place on Saturday, February 18 at Center Place located at 619 Vonderburg Dr. in Brandon. The fun begins at 6 p.m. with social time.
This ladies only event usually sells out fast, so get your tickets now. Tickets go on sale on Friday, January 6 at 10 a.m. Tickets are just $60 per person or you can be a true supporter of the arts, and sponsor a table for just $800. Please note that there are a limited number of tickets.
This year’s theme is Biker Babes Rally Around America. Stages Productions, who has performed at Center Place’s Wild Dame Night for over 20 years, will present Let Freedom Sing. You will not want to miss this special presentation.
In addition to social time and a special presentation by Stages Productions, ladies will enjoy wine, a sit down catered dinner and decadent desserts which has become a tradition of Center Place’s Wild Dame Night. All proceeds from this very special event benefit children’s programming at Center Place. Dawn Galia, Executive Director of Center Place said, “Wild Dame Night helps with our Children’s theater programming.
Over 15,000 children each year from public schools, private schools, daycares and homeschooling families come and enjoy our live theater at Center Place featuring Stages Productions, Inc., Katie Adams Make Believe Theater and ArtsPower each year. This may be the only theater experience that some of these children ever get to experience.”
Galia added, “It is important to Center Place to continue to offer our quality programming. The arts do make a difference.”
