What is the Live Source Spring Gala?

Every year the staff, artists, and Board of the Live Source Theatre Group host the Spring Gala to benefit our multidisciplinary group and yearly programming. We celebrate those have devoted their lives to the non-profit theatrical world, whether through producing, design, arts advocacy, or performance. Our honorees are ground-breakers; individuals who cross barriers, shatter expectations, and bring the tide of change in order to advance the non-profit arts world.

Where is the Gala held?

The gala is held at the historic Spanish Benevolent Society, a gorgeous multi-level brownstone in Chelsea, located at 239 West 14th Street (see map below). Read more about the venue here.

What should I wear?

The official dress code is “festive attire”, which is code for wear whatever makes you feel great! We’ve had guests in black tie, and others sporting business casual. We want you to be comfortable, as your experience is the most important thing to us.

Where & when can I get tickets?

Tickets will be available on this page very soon.

What is the schedule for the evening?

Upon entering, we’ll take some photos with you at our “step & repeat”, and then send you over to the bar for some libations and food. Soon after, we’ll open up the main room where we will have a silent auction, and live guitar. A bit later we will have some brief remarks, followed by some performances.

Will you serve food?

Yes. We usually do a large amount of passed hors d’oeuvres and spreads. The gala will wrap up around 9:30PM, so there is still time for dinner, although most of our guests leave full and satisfied.

What’s the bar situation?

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Shrub & Co., our open bar features a beautiful selection of wine, beer and craft cocktails.

I have more questions!
