Club Collins marks a significant milestone for OpenStage as it represents the theatre company’s first in-person fundraiser since 2017. This inaugural pop-up style event promises to be an unforgettable evening filled with celebration and appreciation for the arts, while also serving as an outreach opportunity for the community to learn more about OpenStage and its initiatives.

Guests will be treated to culinary delights, specially crafted cocktails, and libations from local favorites such as Odell Brewing Co. and the OBC Wine Project. Entertainment includes a DJ and dance floor for guests to enjoy.

In addition to the festivities, attendees will have the exclusive privilege of being the first to hear OpenStage’s 52nd Season announcement for 2024-2025, with show descriptions presented by the directors themselves.
