SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY FEB 5, 2020

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) presents its annual fundraiser, the Dangerous Ladies Shindig, on Monday, February 24 in FST’s Hegner Theatre Wing. In support of FST’s Suffragist Project, a city-wide artistic celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, attendees are invited to don their finest 1920-inspired garb, best cocktail attire, or dress as their favorite “Dangerous Lady.” The evening kicks off with a cocktail reception featuring jazz and swing, performances by FST’s resident improv troupe, and more. Guests will then assemble in FST’s Gompertz Theatre to watch exclusive live performances by some of FST’s beloved artists. A seated dinner by Michael’s on East will conclude the evening. During the Shindig, FST will present the esteemed Spelman Award. Named in honor of Florida Studio Theatre’s founding Artistic Director, Jon Spelman, the Spelman Award is presented to a foundation or an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership by providing FST with mentorship, financial, and/or in-kind support.

This year’s Spelman Award recipient is Gaele Barthold, who has shown unwavering enthusiasm and dedication to the art and growth of the theatre as an Underwriter for FST’s Mainstage, Cabaret, and Stage III programs. She has also provided guidance as a member of FST’s Board of Directors for the past four years. The Gulf Coast Community Foundation is the lead supporter of FST’s Dangerous Ladies Shindig.

Tickets are $250 per person. To reserve a seat, please call Matthew Quick, Development Associate at (941) 366-9017 ext. 316. The funds raised during the Shindig will support the artists, events, and programs of FST’s Suffragist Project, which concludes in August 2020.
