Just as the Auditorium Theatre offers spectacular performances throughout the year, we also regularly host unforgettable galas, dinner parties, and meet the artist receptions especially for generous people like yourself who adore the Auditorium Theatre and want to support and celebrate our mission-driven work.

Celebrating Ailey at the Auditorium

Join us in celebrating Ailey’s 60th anniversary and the 50th anniversary performing at the Auditorium Theatre with an opening night post-performance soirée with Artistic Director Robert Battle and members of the Ailey company. The soirée will be held at Venue Six10 immediately following the March 6 performance at the Auditorium Theatre and includes cocktails, buffet supper, DJ, and more!

All proceeds benefit the Auditorium’s presentation of the Ailey company in Chicago.
