MTC's 53rd Season VIRTUAL Gala

Each year, MTC depends on our annual fundraising gala to celebrate accomplishments and to raise critical funds necessary to keep our artistic and educational programs thriving. However, this year due to the uncharted waters of the COVID-19 health emergency and the mandated “shelter in place” order, we’ve had to cancel our annual fundraiser Gala53! 

Friday, April 3rd at 5pm: Bidding opens!
Monday, April 6th at 7pm: Bidding closes!


Our revamped VIRTUAL Gala53! will allow you to bid on exclusive auction lots, fine wines and donate to our Fund-a-Need, all while supporting MTC. 

In light of recent events, we need your help now more than ever to weather this storm and come out the other side as the Marin Theatre Company you know and love. Our theatre field has always served as a place of community engagement and healing, shining bright through some of our country’s darkest days. We will find a way to shine our essential light again—but we'll need your help to get there. 

When this crisis is over, we want MTC's staff and artists to be healthy, poised and ready to help make our stage shine again brighter than ever—and we know we can do it with your vital, continued support.

First: Don't forget to wash your hands and stay safe at home!

Second: While you’re at home, please consider participating in our VIRTUAL Gala53! online auction!

Peruse exclusive auction lots and fine wines TODAY and register (see “how-to register” via the link below) so that you’re ready to bid online. Then beginning Fri., April 3rd at 5pm sharp all auction lots will be open to bids, in addition to straight donations to our Fund-a-Need. Online bidding will continue through Mon., April 6th and will close at 7pm sharp!


Please share our VIRTURAL Gala53! with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
