Who says Tacoma isn’t magical?
There is no doubt about it, when the 11th annual “Star Chefs on Broadway: Magic and Mischief,” stirs up a magical meal, entertainment and auctions at the Pantages Theater on Sunday, March 26th, starting at 5pm.
Described as “the best dinner party in the South Sound,” “Star Chefs” benefits Broadway Center’s arts education programs, which serve 40,000 students, teachers, and families annually. The various programs provide theater classes, youth camps, educational matinees, and professional development opportunities, as well as community outreach projects, including the LENS Project and the Civil Rights Legacy Tour.
If you are not familiar with The LENS project or the Civil Rights Legacy Tours, The Len’s Project uses the arts to teach social and leadership skills, while the Civil Rights Legacy Tour sponsors touring productions that honor the legacy of civil rights leaders and encourage civic responsibility among young learners.
“Star Chef” offers a night of mischief, revelry, and delicious dishes.
The Pantages Theater has been converted into an elegant dining hall, where the guests will enjoy a whimsical four-course meal and magical potions (wine) by Pacific Grill And there will be music by Davina & the Vagabonds. A live auction follows with prizes of vacation getaways, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, show tickets, and oodles more.
As magic is the couture theme of the evening, patrons are encouraged to don their best wizarding attire –cloaks, wands, hats, and other fanciful dress. Go ahead: Release your inner Merlin, Harry Potter, Fairy Godmother or sorceress, but you might want to leave your caldron at home. Your hosts are wizards, but no evil or hanky-panky is afoot. They only cast delightful and delicious spells.
Tickets start at $235.00. Special VIP tickets are $600 per couple, and include a one-night stay in the Murano Hotel, valet parking, limo to the Pantages Theater, breakfast for two at Bite, and exclusive wines and chocolates.
With the National Endowment for the Arts in danger of being unfunded, support for the arts is a gift you can give to your community and artists. It will be given back to you tenfold through concerts, productions and all manner of the arts.
