Many of the guests will be filming from their own homes, said spokesman Ryan Oliveti, while a handful will be live (but socially distant) at the theater itself, on Luckie Street.
Oliveti said the gala’s fund-raising target is $125,000.
Guests at the online gala will presumably have to mix those homemade cocktails themselves. In the coming days the theater plans to post recipes for speciality cocktails for those who want to fix them at home.
The items that will be auctioned include original art, restaurant meals and vacation getaways.
Patrons of the theater will be asked to tape a reminiscence of their favorite Theatrical Outfit memory. A montage of those memories will be played during the evening’s entertainment.
