BIDDING IS LIVE NOW!
Join The Umbrella's Biggest Night Out of the Year!
You are invited to ARTRAGEOUS --The Umbrella Community Art Center’s most festive gala event of the year! It features live entertainment, dinner & cocktail fare, an awards ceremony, and a fantastic online and in-person silent art auction.
This year's theme, "The Umbrella Takes Center Stage," celebrates the expansion of The Umbrella and recognizes the "leveling up" of our Performing Arts program, which recently launched The Umbrella Stage Company as Greater Boston's newest professional theater company, and which will stage its next expanded season in the brand-new, state-of-the-art, multi-theater wing at 40 Stow Street.
Hosted by The Umbrella Performing Arts Director Brian Boruta, the event will feature dazzling live theatrical entertainment and honor the success and artistic contributions of award-winning director Nancy Curran Willis, as this year's Stewardship of the Arts Award Recipient.
Event starts at 6:30 PM and takes place at Nashoba Brooks School, Concord.
