Barrington Stage Company’s 15th Anniversary Gala

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings
What could be more unpretentious than a picnic dinner in a parochial school gym? Barrington Stage Company returned to St. Joseph High School for its 15th annual gala, which followed a late afternoon performance of Carousel (which runs through July 11). The party honored artistic director Julianne Boyd, who was serenaded by BSC alumni, including Debbie Boone, who sang her 1997 #1 hit song, “You Light Up My Life.” The party confirmed some definite trends emerging on the charity circuit:  On the food front, meals are being served family style which creates a sense of conviviality at the table and allows you to help yourself to seconds—and everyone wanted more of the awesome fried chicken, sliced steak, corn-and-green bean and potato salads served by Max Ultimate Food. On the fashion front, men are feeling comfortable to wear flip-flops and shorts with sports jackets so they can be as cool as the ladies in their sleeveless dresses.
