Twinkly lights, delicious food and great company– including a diva goat named Mabel– what better way to spend a summer Saturday night in Gainesville? Enjoy scenes from the ART’s 2017-2018 season, great food and drink from Pearl Country Store & Barbeque, a live auction featuring products and services from some of Gainesville’s most iconic shops and professionals, a chance to dedicate one of our new comfy seats, and so much more! Did we mention there’s a goat?! Don’t miss it!
Acrosstown Season Gala
The Traila’ Gala
Saturday, August 26, 2017
6:00 PM Cocktail Hour; 7:00 PM Show
Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 night of the show
The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre
In the Historic Baird Center in the South Main Arts District,
between Akira Wood and Heartwood Soundstage
619 South Main Street
Gainesville, FL 32601
The theme is Trailer Park Gala (it’s our Traila’ Gala in celebration of the first show of our season, Michael Presley Bobbitt’s Trailer Park Elegy), so what do you wear? That’s up to you! Some of our board will be dressed to the nines in cocktail attire, others may dress for fun– and the goat may not be wearing anything at all (gasp!)– but you’re sure to have a great time no matter what your outfit.
We recommend you come early (doors open at 6pm, show begins at 7pm) for best parking– plus, you’ll get the opportunity to drink, dance, pet a goat, and have a wonderful time before the show!
