What does the word cabaret mean to you? Cabaret: entertainment held in a nightclub or restaurant while the audience eats or drinks at tables. Which is a very simplified explanation of what attendees will experience on May 5, 2018 at the Mad Art Gallery.
Proceeds from Gateway Men’s Chorus’ 7th Annual Cabaret Risqué fundraiser will sustain and expand the important efforts, programs and reach of the organization. Like GMC and the he community it serves, performances will showcase a variety of acts and individuals, reflective of our combined diversity.
For those wanting the “full experience”, 100 VIP Reception tickets are being made available, providing you with a first class experience that begins one hour before doors open to the public.
You step into the Mad Art Gallery and there is a bar directly to your left. You have exclusive access to everything from a premium open bar for the entire night to hot hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour. It doesn’t stop there.
A slight of hand and an unexpected pop of magic from our magician/mentalist is sure to liven the night. Is your future bright and expectant or passionate and mysterious? Be sure to get your answers from our fortune teller. You can make anything out of blown rubber; use your imagination. Our balloon artist is sure to twist up an adult surprise for you. These festive touches are sponsored by KENHALLER.NET are exclusive to the VIP reception.
There is a wonderful sponsorship available for Main Stage performances. Picture sitting at a table for two that will be recognized by the internationally acclaimed Showgirl Lola Van Ella during the performance. Van Ella and her troupe of talented entertainments will put on a performance that is certain to entertain! Musical acts range from comedic to erotic to surreal and are only appropriate for an adult audience.
It pays to be a sponsor, but general admission and VIP guests alike will have much to look forward to. All attendees will want to keep an eye on this year’s selection of silent auction items, and bid often. (Did I mention that VIPs get first access at 7pm?)
During the Intermission, guests will enjoy a delicious dessert, coffee, and tea reception sponsored by MACSPERTISE. A rich, decadent chocolate fountain with delicious desserts to dip will add to the already sensual mood of the event. A hot cup of coffee or tea will keep you at attention; the self-serving stations will be open until the conclusion of the event.
This fun and unique annual fundraising event is sure to delight while supporting the future of the Gateway Men’s Chorus. With our VIP reception, Silent Auction, and Main Stage Burlesque performances, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to come out and support the Gateway Men’s Chorus on a night of excitement and enticement.
We Will Rise
Gateway Men's Chorus turns the spotlight on the socio-political events and issues impacting disenfranchised communities and minorities through the United States, and more specifically, here in Saint Louis. This moving and educational program takes a hard look at issues impacting our city and our world, including: transgender rights, systemic violence and oppression suffered by African-Americans, and the stigmas surrounding mental illness and suicide. Featuring the Saint Louis debut of Joel Thompson's "Seven Last Words of the Unarmed", this concert is a must-see event that will have Saint Louis talking for years to come.
