The Emerald City Gala

Emerald City Gala

Our Premier Semi-Formal Event!

John Fricke
John Fricke entertains the crowd at the 2007 Gala.

An adult evening featuring a lavish dinner, live entertainment, and a cash bar.  Also returning this year is our famous costume contest with cash prizes!  This year, our entertainment will be provided by Mr. Danny Winsor, an original flying monkey from the 1939 MGM film!
Last year's Gala was themed around "WICKED" the hit Broadway musical that tells the untold story of the Witches of Oz before Dorothy dropped in.  John Fricke entertained the crowd with classic Judy Garland songs.  Also, John Henson of Broadway Cares: Equity Fights AIDS brought an amazing selection of original props and costume pieces from the New York production of WICKED in addition to The Broadway Cares Elphaba and Glinda Bears.
This event is held in the Main Hall of the Expo Center and it will be attended by all our Munchkins and celebrity guests.  Don't miss you chance to "hob-nob" with Oz fans and celebrities!
Advanced tickets are required. Tickets are $40.00 and can be purchased here.
