TriArts Gala at the Salisbury School Boathouse
TriArts in Sharon, CT, is rethinking how it defines “crowd pleaser.” A unique blend of professional designers, directors, musicians, Equity actors, non-Equity actors, and dedicated community performers and volunteers, TriArts built its reputation on reprising Broadway classics primarily from the Rodger & Hammerstein era. After this year’s opening production of 42nd Street, TriArts will present Rent, the landmark musical about AIDS, and Hairspray, the musical based on the John Waters film starring a man dressed as a woman. At last Saturday’s gala at the breathtaking Salisbury School boathouse, the guests were dazzled by the the summer preview performances as well as the stunning lakefront views.
Gala chairs Lola White, Alexandra Lange and Carol Kalikow; Elyse Harney Morris, Mimi Harney, Kathleen Devaney and Stephanie Roy.
Cast members from TriArts upcoming production of Rent: Jason Stanley (Mark Cohen), Jared Weiss (Rodger) and Kanda Good (Angel); TriArts executive director Alice Bemand with board chairman David K. Sims.
