LCT Caps 75th Anniversary With Celebrity Curtain Call

Fall down the rabbit hole at Lexington Children’s Theatre’s sixth annual Celebrity Curtain Call as a cast of local public figures explores the topsy-turvy world of “Wonderland” on Saturday, April 12 at LCT’s Main Stage.

Guests can celebrate like the Mad Hatter as they are serenaded by singing servers during the 7 p.m. dinner reception.

Food from O’Charley’s and local vendors, and bourbon tasting with Blanton’s bourbon will be featured.

Also part of the event is a silent auction including a weeklong trip to the Bahamas, a week’s stay at a luxury home in Florida’s Treasure Coast with park hopper passes to Disney World, and a weeklong stay in Stinson Beach, Calif.

At 8:30 p.m., guests will venture into the theatre to watch a celebrity lineup perform Alice in Wonderland.

This year’s cast includes Miss Kentucky 2013 Jenna Day; Vice Mayor Linda Gorton; Neil Chethik, executive director of the Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning, and Tom Shelton, superintendent of Fayette Co. Public Schools among others.

Exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of the facility are available so guests can see how LCT makes magic in their costume and scene shops or get a sneak peek backstage before the show.

Table seating in LCT’s studios will also be available for purchase.

All proceeds from the event go directly toward the theatre’s programming expenses like costumes, props and tours around the Commonwealth.

Last year’s event raised more than $30,000 to support LCT’s mission of serving the youth of Kentucky through the arts.

Tickets are on sale by phone or online for $75 per ticket or $425 for a table of six.
