TUTS "New Beginnings" Gala a sold-out success!

We are so pleased to report that TUTS' first ever gala fundraiser, held this past Friday Oct. 4 at the Sutton Place Hotel, was a fabulous success. Our 120 attendees enjoyed a lovely meal, hosted with flair by MCs Shel Piercy and Gillian Barber, with three courses interspersed with entertainment provided by a star-studded line-up of leading ladies from past TUTS shows, along with the third-year students of the Capilano University Musical Theatre Program, pianist Steven Greenfield, and a few surprise special guests. Out in the lobby, guests played dress-up in the photo booth (with a colourful selection of costumes provided by our long-time costume designer Chris Sinosich) and the silent auction buzzed with activity. It was all a ton of fun, and we're grateful to all who attended and/or helped behind the scenes, for your generous support of TUTS through this event. Huge credit goes to Board member and Fundraising Committee chair Fila Testini, for being the driving force behind "New Beginnings" from start to finish. Rumour has it that she already has some ideas for our next fundraising event...watch this space to make sure you don't miss out!
