Palm Beach Dramaworks

Kickoff Party at First Republic Bank
Honoring Host Committee of
Palm Beach Dramaworks’ Upcoming Gala:

“1940s Radio Days”
Get out your zoot suit, your New Look ensemble, your high-waisted pants, your shoulder pads, your fedora, your Hattie Carnegie hat, and your memories in anticipation of Palm Beach Dramaworks’ 19 th Anniversary Gala, “1940s Radio Days,” set for March 16 at 6:30p at the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion. 

Chairs Marsha and Stephen Rabb kicked off the festivities on Monday, January 14, when they hosted a cocktail reception for the Gala Committee at the First Republic Bank in Palm Beach.

Guests at the main event are encouraged to dress in 1940s attire (jackets required for men, ties are optional). The evening includes cocktails, dinner, and dancing.
Entertainment will be provided by Jill and Rich Switzer, co-hosts of The Morning Lounge on Legends 100.3 FM and “jazz royalty in Palm Beach County,” who will perform some of the memorable songs that emanated from the air waves back in the day. And what would a 1940s radio hour be without an original, 1940s radio-style play? There will even be limited opportunities for speaking and non-speaking roles (for an additional fee).

Proceeds from the benefit will support PBD. Individual tickets are $600 and tables of ten begin at $6,000. All tickets are tax deductible as provided by law.
Sponsorships are still available.

The evening’s honorary chairs are Nancy and Gene Beard.
The Cohen Pavilion at the Kravis Center is conveniently located at 701 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach.
