State Theatre New Jersey’s 2019 Gala on June 1 was a magical celebration of the arts and a landmark event like never before! Guests were transported to the dazzling and decadent world of the 1920s, when our remarkable history began. During the MetLife Vaudeville Cocktail Hour guests enjoyed spectacular 1920s entertainment and live music throughout the historic State Theatre building. Over dinner the Grammy® and Tony® Award-winning vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater and accompanist Bill Charlap enthralled guests with an exclusive performance.
We were delighted to recognize Corporate Honoree MetLife and Leadership in the Arts Honoree Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. It was our privilege to honor both for their remarkable service as true advocates for the arts and the important role State Theatre plays as an economic driver in our strong and vibrant community.
Thank you to all who came out to support our non-profit mission and celebrate this theater’s unique history.
If you missed this year’s event, keep an eye out for details about our Spring 2020 Gala. We hope to see you there!
