For Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s 22nd anniversary gala, “A Night at the Savoy,” the arts organization will re-create the look and sound of Harlem’s famous ballroom – the first integrated ballroom in New York. The event will take place on Saturday, December 4, 6-9 p.m. at the Circus Arts Conservatory’s Sailor Circus Arena (2075 Bahia Vista St., Sarasota). The arts organization has just announced that the legendary Tony Award-winning artist Melba Moore will appear at the gala, performing three songs along with WBTT artists and the live band. While in-person tickets are sold out, for those who would like to join in the fun from home while supporting the cause, WBTT is offering a livestream option, which is accessible via computer, tablet, smartphone or smart TV.

The livestream begins at 7:30 p.m. and costs $100 (total amount is tax-deductible). In addition to Moore’s appearance, guests will enjoy a live performance from WBTT’s singers and band, with tunes from Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway and others, as they are “dropped off in Harlem” for a night to remember while supporting WBTT. During the event, longtime supporter and immediate past Board of Trustees Chair Marian Moss will be recognized as WBTT’s Heart & Soul Philanthropy honoree. Dinner will be catered by Michael’s On East.
