The “Curtain Call Ball” brought guests “back to the theatre” for an evening of mingling and musical performances that support keeping the curtains open with new works at Le Petit Theatre.

The event began at Tableau, where patrons could mingle and enjoy cocktails, dinner and a silent auction. The musical performance and live auction followed in Le Petit Theatre, where guests were treated to entertainment by Broadway Star Kathleen Monteleone, whose career includes credits such as the role of Elle Woods in the national tour of Legally Blonde and Dede Halcyon-Day in Tales of the City, the Musical, and her Broadway debut originating the role of Heather Stovall in Hands On A Hardbody. Additional credits include the feature Are You Joking? directed by Jake Wilson, TNT’s Good Behavior alongside Michelle Dockery and Comedy Central’s Goatface with Hasan Minhaj. She stars in the feature film American Reject, which she also wrote and produced, which will be premiering early spring of 2022 on Amazon.

A cast of local favorite entertainers offered additional performances, including Bryan Batt, Keith Claverie, Leslie Claverie, Rachel Looney and Kathleen Moore.

Following the performances was a live auction and paddle raise, led by auctioneer Mark Romig. Dessert and nightcaps followed in Tableau.

Anne Redd and Judith Oudt served as Chairs.
