With the convenience of free parking, guests will arrive at the Chattanooga Theatre Center at 5:30 on Friday evening, February 22, 2019. Upon entering the Main Lobby, where the Tennessee River serves as the backdrop, they will be greeted with a wine bar followed by the seated dinner at 6:15. From there, guests will make their way into the Circle Theatre for the award-winning play, Fences, by August Wilson.

A post-production private dessert reception will provide attendees the special opportunity to meet the cast and directors of the play and conclude this special and unique evening of dinner, wine, theatre and more!

This fosters the future of youth in the performing arts including the disciplines of dance, theater, vocal and instrumental music.
