The annual Holiday Gala is a fun evening for everyone—the theater’s staff and board enjoy spending the evening among the theater’s supporters, mingling over cocktails, sharing a lovely dinner, and dancing. The holiday tree auction is always a big hit, with trees as diverse as a Lottery Tree decorated with lottery tickets, the very popular Restaurant Tree featuring gift certificates from favorite local restaurants, and two different Mystery Trees with exciting surprises for the winners. The Holiday Gala is one of Cape Rep’s biggest fundraisers and a wonderful way to celebrate the season.
