Baltimore Center Stage IMPROVISE Gala

Baltimore Center Stage IMPROVISE Gala

Instead of going to a show, hundreds of theatre lovers descended on Baltimore Center Stage to be part of the show – so to speak – at its annual fundraiser. Encouraged to improvise and dress creatively, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the lobby, then sat down to dinner in different rooms around the building. After dinner, they could enjoy – and sometimes join in on – various entertainments, like a magic show, jazz performance and break dancing in different areas of the building.
