The Arts Club Honours

If you're looking for a reason to get all dolled up in November, then look no further than the Art Club Honours.

This swanky bash (on November 30th) will honour three of the Arts Club Theatre's longtime stars, while also raising funds to help support the Arts Club's youth education programs. The evening will include a red carpet reception, followed by dinner, awards show, and after party. It will be a night to remember for theatre lovers.

Hope to see you there!
