Summer Garden Party

July 30, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 8:00 pm

Revel in the magic of the gardens in summer’s full bloom! Mingle with friends, bid in the live auction, enjoy wine and gourmet hors d’oeuvres, and stroll the gardens to tranquil music by guitarist Nick Rogers.

The highlight of the evening will be an abridged performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by playwright and PLU professor of theater Dr. Tom Smith. Harlequin Production’s John Serembe will direct a handful of community actors who will take on the roles of star-crossed lovers and the impish sprite, Puck. Local youth dancers will become fairies, leaping and twirling to choreography originated by Klair Ethridge. Accompanying the performance will be a Piano Four Hand version of Mendelssohn’s classic incidental music performed by Ricardo de la Torre and Lark Powers.

$250 per person
