2018 Jubilee Annual Gala

Dear Patrons and Arts Supporters,

Greetings! Jubilee Theatre is hosting our Annual Fundraising Gala “Showtime”. The event will be held on Friday, May 18, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Red Oak Ballroom in downtown Fort Worth, Texas.  We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Norma Roby, business icon, and community leader, will be serving as our honorary chair for this year’s gala.

Jubilee Theatre is a live theater producing staged plays and musicals. Located in the heart of Sundance Square, it is proudly entrenched in the city of Fort Worth’s rich cultural history. The late Rudy Eastman founded Jubilee Theatre to create and produce theatrical works, which give voice to the African-American experience. We continue that mission today with the help of community partners like you who understand the importance of artistic expression to enrich and entertain all of North Texas.

We would be honored to include you as a sponsor for our Fundraising Gala. As in the past, the success of our event has largely been credited to the contributions of our loyal supporters who have generously given to our biggest fundraiser of the year. Annually, the funds go directly to supporting the general operations of Jubilee Theatre. Your much-needed support will enable us to perpetuate, cultivate as well as innovate future theatrical productions on the Jubilee stage.

You may choose how you would like to participate in the event: sponsor a table; donate money, goods, or services; and/or purchase tickets to our event. Any of these options will assist Jubilee Theatre to continue its tradition of excellence in theater arts and is a wonderful way to show your support to the Fort Worth cultural arts community.
