Virginia Stage Company Behind The Red Curtain

The Virginia Stage Company's largest annual fundraiser for the Wells Theater, the Behind The Red Curtain Gala, was held at the Slover Library in Downtown Norfolk. The event was hosted this year at the library because of the Wells' $4 million renovation. Over 205 theater lovers and friends from all over Hampton Roads attended the Gala to support the Virginia Stage Company. Co-Chairs Bett Cornetta and Donna Henderson arranged for the guests to enjoy a great evening and helped raise nearly $80,000 for the VSC. The event was catered by Cuisine & Company and The Jimmy Masters Trio provided the musical entertainment.
