Harman Center for the Arts
Shakespeare Theatre Company is proud to announce that the Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala on October 5 2014, which honored John Hurt, Stacy Keach, Dame Diana Rigg, and The Beech Street Foundation, raised more than one million dollars for STC’s arts education and community engagement programs. Congratulations to our Co-Chairs Suzanne and Glenn Youngkin and John and Meg Hauge for their hard work and dedication to putting together a truly fabulous evening.
The Much Ado About Shakespeare themed performance featured Judith Light as Master of Ceremonies and performances by violinist Sean Carpenter, Doug Elkins’ Mo(or)town/Redux and The Q Brothers. A special education spotlight with Margot Seibert highlighted students Jackson de Vallance, Camilla Johnson, and Kelai’ah Wheelen, who have participated in STC’s education programs.
Following the performance guests enjoyed a backyard garden party within the National Building Museum complete with shrubbery walls, gardeners, dinner and dancing.
Thank you to everyone that was able to contribute and attend this year. We hope that you will join us next year for another grand evening.
