The Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala is considered one of “Washington’smost buzzed-about galas,” and its proceeds provide indispensable funds for the Theatre’s education and outreach programs, including the annual Free For All.  Each summer, the Free For All brings three weeks of free Shakespeare to D.C.-area residents.  Since Michael Kahn founded the event in 1991, more than 600,000 people—many of whom might not otherwise possess the means to see a full-scale theatrical production—have enjoyed some of STC’s most acclaimed productions completely free of charge.

Following the spectacular array of multidisciplinary performances in Sidney Harman Hall, guests will enjoy the stunning atmosphere of the National Building Museum, one of D.C.’s premier event spaces, to mingle with the stars of the evening and enjoy a gourmet dinner and dancing.  Reserve your tickets soon—this magnificent annual event is not to be missed!
