MCT sets annual Gala and meeting
CAMERON—Milam Community Theater will hold its annual members only Gala and General Membership Meeting beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Williams Event Center in Cameron.
The Gala includes a silent auction that features works from local artists, a fine dinner and a rather impromptu production from MCT’s merry band of actors.
“This is the first event of our 2014 season,” said Kyle Deal, MCT’s president. “Many of our regular patrons tell us that the Gala is worth the price of the whole season so, if you’ve considered joining, this would be a great time. Just make your reservation and join up at the Gala.”
The Gala will feature the group’s General Membership meeting. MCT is a 501c(3) non-profit corporation and is run by a board of directors elected by the members. This year, in addition to approving MCT’s budget, the group will introduce Andy Andrews, Ken Janicek and Carole Brookshire as new members of the theater’s board of directors.
The silent auction and membership meeting begins at 6 p.m. with dinner served around 7 p.m. and the entertainment— such as it is—will begin around 8 p.m.
Gala reservations are required because the caterers require a head count. To make a reservation, contact Monica Schiller at 254- 697-2595. Reservation deadline is Feb. 12.
MCT will stage three shows during the 2014 season, all of them at the group’s new home, the Williams Event Center.
The shows are “The Patient,” an Agatha Christie one-act play that will be on stage April 5, 6, 12, and 13. MCT’s annual dinner theater will be opening night but a meal will be served at each show. The balance of the season includes acclaimed drama “The Rainmaker” July 26, 27, Aug. 2, 3 and, “Virgil’s Wedding,” which will be performed Nov. 1, 2, 8 and 9.
“If you haven’t renewed your membership for the 2014 season, you can do that at the Gala, “said Deal.
