2021 SPRING GALA SERIES

This year, Vineyard Theatre’s annual Gala is going smaller and thinking bigger.

Join The Vineyard from the comfort of your home as we welcome a wide range of brilliant creators and thinkers for a series of intimate hour-long roundtable discussions about what it means to contribute to our culture before, during, and beyond our current moment.

Admission in each Zoom room is limited to 10-15 households, and we expect each of these one-of-a-kind events to fill quickly.


CLICK HERE FOR A LISTING OF TICKET AND “TABLE” LEVELS.

Each ticket includes admission to the event of your choice for one household — as many people as you can fit in your Zoom square! — as well as a home-delivered gift box* with wine and provisions from our neighbors in Union Square. “Table” packages may be used to invite friends to a single event or to spread a “flight” of tickets across multiple evenings.

To purchase or make a donation, please navigate to checkout using the tabs at the top of this page. For more information about the events or to purchase over the phone, please contact Director of Development Trent Anderson at (646) 931-4727 or gala@vineyardtheatre.org.
