About This Event
For Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s 22nd anniversary gala, “A Night at the Savoy,” the arts organization will recreate the look and sound of Harlem’s famous ballroom – the first integrated ballroom in New York. The event will take place on Saturday, December 4, 6-9 p.m. at the Circus Arts Conservatory’s Sailor Circus Arena (2075 Bahia Vista St., Sarasota). Guests will enjoy a live performance from WBTT’s singers and band, with tunes from Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway and others, as they are “dropped off in Harlem” for a night to remember while supporting WBTT. During the event, longtime supporter and immediate past Board of Trustees Chair Marian Moss will be recognized as WBTT’s Heart & Soul Philanthropy honoree. Dinner will be catered by Michael’s On East.\
For those who would prefer to join in the fun from home, WBTT is offering a livestream option, which is accessible via computer, tablet, smartphone or smart TV. Tickets are $275/person for in-person attendance, $100/person for the virtual option.
