Encore Gala

May 18, 2024

(5pm – 8pm)

Located at Artists Repertory Theatre

Join us as we pivot away from a traditional “Gala” format to a more relaxed and celebratory Fundraising event and Season Announcement on May 18th at Artists Repertory Theatre.

Dress theme: Wear whatever makes you comfortable and happy. Bonus if you come with a red accent piece!

Memory & Hope Vault: This isn’t just a celebration about returning to the building, we are celebrating all of you returning too. We would love it if you would share a memory from the past and a hope for the future that will be placed into the floor and sealed. Supplies will be provided at the event. 

Artists Rep stands strong and reinvigorated, ready to embrace the future with renewed energy and passion. This celebration, announcing our 2024/25 season, held in our own home, marks a significant milestone for ART—a momentous occasion to gather together and commemorate our survival, our resilience, and our unwavering dedication to the performing arts in Portland. Come dressed in whatever makes you comfortable and happy (maybe with a flare of ART red) and raise a glass with us, as we toast our past triumphs and future endeavors. Let us celebrate this historic moment in ART’s history, knowing that together, we will continue to uplift, inspire, and captivate audiences for years to come.
