50th Anniversary Gala

Thursday, April 27 at 5 p.m.

Market Street between 7th and 8th

Join A.C.T.’s celebrated alumni and artists from the past 50 years with a black-tie block party along Market Street. This historic night will feature an elegant cocktail reception, dinner, performance, and after-party in The Strand Theater’s Osher Lobby, Rembe Theater, and The Rueff as well as The Costume Shop and the lot next door.  

The star-studded evening will begin with Prosecco Promenade sponsored by La Marca Prosecco and a cocktail reception featuring Blue Angel Vodka at A.C.T.’s Strand Theater and Costume Shop––each space featuring its own entertainment, libations, and décor, including a jazz trio from San Francisco’s Conservatory of Music and live band performance by Casey Lee Hurt (The Unfortunates).

In an elegant supper club–style tented dining room between the two venues, guests will enjoy dinner prepared by McCalls Catering and wine sponsor Nickel & Nickel Winery, along with a one-of-a-kind performance featuring musical numbers from A.C.T. productions from the past 50 years. Special guest performers include alumni from A.C.T.’s Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) Program and Young Conservatory, celebrated artists from throughout A.C.T.’s 50-year history, as well as current M.F.A. and YC students.

The evening will conclude with an after party featuring cocktails and entertainment across the evening’s spaces.

The 50th Anniversary Gala benefits A.C.T.’s multifaceted training and education programs, including its world-renowned Master of Fine Arts Program, the Young Conservatory, Back to the Source, and ACTsmart, theater-based arts education that reaches more than 12,000 Bay Area school students each year.
