“Puttin' on the Glitz” is the theme of the 2012 Annual Ordway Circle of Stars Gala. You are invited to step back in time for an evening on the Ordway stage filled with glamour, 1920's-themed entertainment, and prohibition-era cocktails and cuisine. This black-tie gala benefits the Ordway and its education programs.
5 p.m. Evening Begins: Gourmet Reception & Silent Auction
8 p.m. Short program in the Ordway Music Theater and Live Auction
9 p.m. Onstage at the Ordway
Dancing and Dessert
Featuring: The Wolverines Big Band. Special guest performances throughout the evening.

Auctions and prize drawings throughout the evening will include a vast collection of the OCOS and the Ordway Board’s favorite red and white wines as well as other unique packages for bidders. The auction also will be featured online in advance of the event.
NEW: The Black Tie Blitz. For people who like to start their evenings a bit later, the OCOS offers a fun new option. Dress to the nines and arrive fashionably late for an evening of gyrations and libations onstage at the Ordway. Guests will sashay their way into the Ordway’s “Puttin’ on the Glitz” Gala, and party to the sounds of the Wolverines Big Band and other featured performers. Both black tie or 1920’s attire is admired but not required. For this group, the evening begins at 8:30 p.m. and the event costs $75/person, $130/couple or $90/person at the door and includes valet parking, complimentary wine and beer, decadent desserts and coffee bar from The Saint Paul Hotel, plus the opportunity to dance the night away onstage at the Ordway.
