WATERBURY – The “party of the decade” returns to Waterbury, CT, on Friday, May 13, 2016, as the Palace Theater celebrates the culmination of its eleventh season with Palace 10.1, the latest version of the theater’s wildly popular “Palace 10.0” tenth anniversary event, which sold-out last season.
Featuring six different parties in one location, Palace 10.1 engages guests in a one-of-a-kind experience that invites them to explore six different spaces throughout the theater, each buzzing with themed entertainment, specialty bars, plentiful food stations, and live music running the spectrum of musical interests.
The pre-party kicks off at 5p.m. outside on the theater’s loading dock with an array of craft beers, food trucks, and a live performance by local tribute band E2 “The Eagles Experience.” At 6p.m., the doors swing open to the Grand Foyer and into a Tuscan themed lounge where guests will enjoy hors d’ oeuvres, wine and light musical entertainment from soprano Marissa Famiglietti and her husband Shae Apland. From there, guests can venture to the Poli Club for an evening of cabaret with Broadway performer Trevor McQueen, mosey to the mezzanine for a country bar encounter with Nashville artist AJ Jansen, dance the night away at a trendy on stage club featuring special guest DJ Jim O’Rourke, Executive Director of the Greater Waterbury YMCA, and end the night on a high note with an interactive performance by Keys to the City’s dueling piano players in the orchestra lobby.
Admission to the event is $75 per person, which includes two complimentary drink vouchers and complimentary food stations throughout the theater. Tickets can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at www.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the Box Office, 100 East Main St. in Waterbury. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Palace Theater’s Annual Campaign.
Palace 10.1 is sponsored in part by MacDermid; Ion Bank; Carmody & Torrance LLC; American Savings Foundation; Connecticut Community Foundation; City of Waterbury Mayor’s Commission on Arts and Tourism; Crystal Rock, Powerstation Events and Barter Business Unlimited.
