Have you ever read a book and become so deeply captivated by the characters and the plot that you can feel your heart racing as you anticipate what will happen next? Has the memory of a story ever stuck with you for years to come?
Several years ago, I read the book Night Circus and became engrossed in the storyline. There is a part of the story where one of the characters named Chandresh hosts midnight dinners. Friends and acquaintances alike clamor to get an invitation to one of these dinners due to the extreme passion and artistic nature of each dinner. No one dinner is the same. No one who attends a dinner will ever have the same experience as all dinners are completely different and attendees do not know what to expect when they arrive.
The concept of hosting a Midnight Dinner has been on my bucket list since I read Night Circus. To my delight, as the Cultural Membership Specialist for Parker Arts, this opportunity is coming to life. While the dinner is not at midnight and it might not be as dramatic as the book, we are hosting a unique and exciting fundraiser event called “Night of Intrigue Stage Dinner” on Thursday, Oct. 11 starting at 6:30 p.m.
Dinner will be hosted on the stage at the PACE Center. As you enjoy dinner, the set and props for A Chorus Line will be surrounding the space. This intimate exclusive event starts with hors d’oeuvres from Seasons 52 and a drink in the lobby, followed by dinner from Rory’s Catering (the owner of Rory’s Diner), more drinks, and dessert on the stage.
Throughout the evening numerous entertainers will both awe and impress you. With the book in mind, we have chosen to keep the specific talent under wraps. But we assure you that the fun and laughter will be infectious, the artistic components in the night will invigorate, and the food will be delectable.
The best part is that it will all be for a great cause, as the proceeds of the night will go towards funding Parker Arts’ educational enrichment and outreach programming. These programs, such as the Honeybee Festival, low-cost student matinees for schools, and accessibility assistance serve thousands of learners of all ages and abilities.
The cost of the event is $125 per person, and a table of eight is $900.
Tickets are limited and can be purchased at
