TUTS’ supporters and theatre fans packed Hobby Center to enjoy a night of festivities and to pay tribute to the nonprofit by raising funds for its arts education programs. Upon arrival, guests were treated like true celebrities – paparazzi blinded guests before they made their way to the Grand Lobby where they took in cocktails and mingled as they witnessed La Cage-themed showgirls preening and posing along the auction items. Once seated on the gorgeously decorated stage of Sarofim Hall, attendees were treated to a star-studded performance by George Dvorsky, Logan Keslar, Julia Krohn and Lee Roy Reams. An evening highlight was a command performance by TUTS’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre student Mallory Bechtel as she performed a medley from Les Miserables upon a swing above the diners.
