Join us for an evening of exquisite theater and phenomenal food, supporting Gloucester Stage’s mission of creating live theater this summer.
This fundraising dinner will feature a menu pulled directly from Theresa Rebeck’s Seared script, with support from Timothy Hopkins Catering. Guests who attend the performance beforehand will get to see and experience the story unfold onstage and then be treated to several courses under a dining tent at Windhover Performing Arts Center.
Dinner and a show has never been this easy – or this good! Live music throughout the evening, reserved seating at tables of 6 to keep guests safe, and a live auction featuring fabulous trips across the continent.
Harry stands in the middle of the kitchen. He is alone. Bowls of vegetables, herbs, bottles of oil, ramekins, as well as a huge piece of salmon, surround him.
He starts to chop. Chops a jalapeno, into smaller and smaller pieces. Then shallots, one after another.
In the middle of the process, he turns, pickus up a gorgeous pan. He picks up a bottle of olive oil, drenches the pan in it…
