Milam Community Theater plans Gala, season tickets on sale now
Milam Community Theater proudly announces the entertainment for its annual Members’ Gala on Saturday, Feb. 11, at The Williams Event Center located at 408 S..Columbus Ave. in Cameron.
Richard and Tia Stone will be performing a readers’ theater production of Mark Twain’s “Diaries of Adam and Eve” at the event.
“If you haven’t seen this show before, you cannot miss this event,” Pixie Schneider, President of MCT said. “It’s a beautiful, funny and bittersweet story of love and loss.”
The Gala will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a wine and cheese reception sponsored by Bobby and Monica Schiller followed by a short business meeting and dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. The event also includes a Silent Auction that helps the theater fund its programming throughout the year.
MCT members, of course, get Gala admission as part of their membership package, but RSVP’s are required. The public may also attend for $50 per person.
