Underwriter Party for The Old Globe Gala held in Rancho Santa Fe


An Underwriter Party for supporters of The Old Globe Gala was held July 13 at the home of Lynne and Steve Wheeler in Rancho Santa Fe.

The Old Globe Theatre will celebrate “80 Years of Extraordinary Theatre,” from its founding in 1935 through the current 2015 Anniversary Season, in the art deco splendor of Club 3515, at the 2015 Globe Gala on July 25 in support of the theater’s education and artistic programs.

The annual event will feature an exclusive, one-night-only cabaret performance by Carmen Cusack, who recently starred in the world premiere of “Bright Star” at the Globe. Pamela Cesak, Jo Ann Kilty, and Vicki Zeiger serve as co-chairs of the 2015 Globe Gala.

The black-tie event will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception on the Globe’s Copley Plaza, followed by Carmen Cusack’s performance at 7 p.m. on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. After the performance, dinner and dancing to the swing music of The Cab Calloway Orchestra, directed by Cab’s grandson, Brooks Calloway, will commence on Copley Plaza until midnight.
