Costumes & Cocktails at Actors Theatre

Disclaimer: I am a member of the Actors Theatre Generation One Board. I am one of the Social Chairs (a little funny if you know me and know that I am not exactly a social butterfly), and I manage the GOBoard Twitter feed. You'll be hearing a lot from me about the GOBoard's activities. We're pushing hard to recruit new members this season. If you're young (we don't really have a cut-off age, but 45 or younger is the unofficial "young" -- woo hoo!) and you support Actors Theatre, we'd love to have you!

Have you ever wanted to poke around in Actors Theatre's Costume Shop? Here's your chance to go behind-the-scenes and see where the fashion magic happens at the theatre.

Join the GOBoard for cocktails, music, and food (provided by great local restaurants including the Silver Dollar and Mayan Cafe) on July 28 from 7pm -11pm for Costumes & Cocktails in Actors' Costume Shop. [enter at 315 W. Market Street, next to Kinko's]

The theme of the event is "Through the Decades"-- come dressed in costume or snag some duds from the costume trunk. Costumes & Cocktails is one of only two public events offered by the GOBoard each season, so come hang out with our fantastic group of young professionals who love and support Actors Theatre and want to share their passion for the arts with you.

The first 50 people get a free drink ticket with their $10 admission. YPAL members receive a free drink ticket as well. That means if you're a YPAL member AND you are among the first 50 people at the event, you get TWO tickets.

Our DJ for the evening is Jason Clark, who has rocked Lebowski Fests past. And of course we'll have a photo booth on hand to capture you and your friends in all of your crazy costume glory.

A little bit about the GOBoard (I'll be doing a full post on the benefits of joining next week) from the website:
