PRIVATE RECEPTION  It’s caviar and a champagne cocktail toast to celebrate the Civic’s past, present and future. Look for some BIG CHEESE, too — special guests for this very special occasion!  

IMMERSIVE GALA  We’re celebrating in high style. Step back in time to the decade when our lavishly designed theater was built: the Roaring 20s! We’re going all Gatsby on you this summer with lush décor, luscious drinks, fabulous food, decadent desserts, a boppin’ big band, awesome auction items and amusements to keep you partying through the evening. Dive in — the water’s fine!

Your ticket purchase will provide critical operating support as The Civic transitions to our new future. You’ll help us expand our performing arts programming and reflect the wonderful diversity and multitude of voices of our community. You’ll contribute to making the theater accessible to all members of our community through our Huntington Access for All program, and you’ll join an important group of supporters who help sustain the cherished, historic “Jewel on Main Street.”
