A busy Thingamajig Theatre season continues at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts, with repertory performances throughout the summer featuring our stellar 2022 cast and three shows: “Bright Star”, “Guys and Dolls,” and “The SpongeBob Musical” rotating between evening and matinee performances.
To help support the theatre’s ambitious programming, Thingamjig will present its annual fundraising ‘Broadway Gala’ — a cabaret-style show, including a catered meal by Alley House Grille and an auction of unique items you can only find at Thingamajig. The talented summer company, in addition to their roles in the summer musicals, will be highlighting additional talents at the Gala and through the auction items up for bid.
Reserve your seat for this wonderful event to show your love and support for live theatre in Pagosa Springs.
Tickets are $250 for this dressy evening and are on sale now, here.
Unique auction items
The actors are working on their acts for the cabaret concert and their individual contributions to the auction – and keeping them a secret surprise until the gala evening.
A look at a few of past years’ one-of-a-kind auction offerings gives you a good idea of what very special fun will be available this year. They included actors’ serenades at private parties, a brunch with several of the actors, a sunrise hike led by two actors, and a personalized cocktail party featuring a drink created just for the winning bidder.
Some of the perennial favorites will be offered again this year. One is a progressive dinner for 10 people when actors chauffeur you and your friends to four incredible locations where you’ll enjoy wine pairings, serenades and delicious food prepared by the cast.
Another popular auction item is a photo shoot for four when the actors will do your hair and makeup as you enjoy champagne and chocolate, then provide costumes before you pose with the cast for a very special picture that could be your best Christmas card ever. A third is an evening campfire singalong with the actors.
“We know from previous galas that our guests have been surprised and delighted by the evening’s festivities – and especially the clever and creative auction opportunities,” said Laura Moore, executive director and co-founder of Thingamajig Theatre with her husband Tim. “We are deeply grateful for everyone’s support because the musicals that folks are seeing on stage this summer would not be possible without the funding raised at the gala.”
Tickets for all the shows and the Gala can be purchased online at pagosacenter.org or by calling the Box Office at 970-731-SHOW (7469).
