Gala F.A.Q.
Wait. So this...this is...a funeral??
Not exactly. The Oxford English Dictionary defines a requiem as "An act or token of remembrance." That's exactly what this is, only instead of remembering a person, we're remembering a theatrical season.
Is there a dress code?
We're calling it "bonfire black tie." This includes anything you might wear to a bonfire, but feel free to add a little formal flair. Here are some examples.
Huh? Bonfire??
Yes. There will be a viking funeral pyre on which we will be burning items from Season Seven. That's just one of several fun activities we have in store for you.
Viking funeral pyre? I thought you said it wasn't a funeral.
Okay, it's a little like a funeral.
Is there a place for me to park my car at this theatre funeral?
1.) It's not a funeral, and 2.) yes, there is free parking at Next Chapter Winery.
Will there be a dinner at this event?
No, but there will be lots of snacks and appetizers.
What time can I arrive?
The event begins at 5:30pm.
How many tickets are available? Should I worry about it selling out?
Due to space, we can only sell 50 VIP tickets and 150 General tickets. We did the math for you; that's 200 total tickets. Daleko has over 500 Season Members, so very well might sell out. Grab your tickets as soon as you're able!
Bonfire Black Tie
Here are a couple examples to get you started.
DalekoArts Board Vice President
Here, we see DalekoArts board Vice President, Lori, sporting a flannel shirt, rhinestone earrings, and a black dress (probably tennis shoes, too). She's clearly covered the "black tie," but she's also game for the "bonfire." Good job, Lori.
DalekoArts Board President
DalekoArts board President, Patrick, has also gone the flannel route. He's added a black tie because he's very literal. He might also be wearing dress pants with hiking boots, but we can't be totally sure. Bonfire Black Tie. Nice work, Patrick.
Josh Campbell
DalekoArts Board Treasurer
Josh, DalekoArts board Treasurer, has decided to go summery for the bonfire side of his ensemble, with a sleek tank that just hints at a tattoo underneath. The look is completed with a standard black tie, sunglasses, and a hipster fedora. Well done, Josh.
To clarify: have fun! This event will be a little quirky, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Feel free to make Bonfire Black Tie whatever you'd like it to be. See you Sunday!
