“Because of you, the arts are alive and doing very well in Bethesda. The world is a different place because of your support of the arts. Remember that value that you give to some child somewhere who’s looked to the arts to change their life. You’re making it possible by supporting this theatre,” said Ben Vereen at the Round House Theatre of Bethesda’s 2017 Gala.
The Broadway in Bethesda event, billed as ‘Steppin’ Out with Ben Vereen,’ was a night to remember that set a Round House fundraising record for both highest gross revenue and highest net revenue.
The event’s pledges to the theatre’s Play It Forward initiative also allow it to continue its development of a next generation of theatre artists, audiences, and administrators.
