Hartford Stage Gala


A cocktail-style party in support of artistic, community and education programming.

Saturday, April 29, 2023

at downtown Hartford’s historic
Society Room

Your RSVP will unlock access to exclusive masques and inspiration to help you get red carpet ready.

Q: Is there a plated dinner?
A: No, this event will have plenty of self-serve food options, but no plated dinner.

Q: If I buy the Party Ticket, do I have to stand for the entire event?
A: No, there will be seating options (small tables, couches, etc.) throughout the venue. As a cocktail-style party we encourage guests to explore the venue, mingle with one another, and enjoy the live music. If you want to guarantee a place to sit at a table, the VIP ticket may be a better option.

Q: Do I have to wear a mask?
A: Masks will not be required, but we hope you will embrace the creative challenge and wear one!

Q: I’ve never been to the Society Room, where is it?
A: The Society Room is located in downtown Hartford, on the corner of Pratt & Main Streets.  It is one of the city’s oldest landmarks, originally a bank. Come to the Masquerade and have your photo taken in its original vault!

Q: What is the Dress Code?
A: Get Glamourous! We encourage you to show off your personal red carpet ready look. There is no enforced attire – we want you to be yourself! (However, we do prefer you leave your jeans at home.)

Q: Is there an auction?
A: Yes, there will be an online-auction in tandem with this party. Keep your eye out for announcements and emails on when it’s going live.

Q: Where do I park?
A: There is a Pro-Park lot adjacent to the venue. Enter on Asylum Ave. in Hartford. There is also free weekend street parking all throughout downtown Hartford.
