What: Alley Theatre Scene Opening Act Party

Where: Alley Theatre

Who: Chairs Elizabeth and Benjamin Smith; guests Melissa Buce, Emilie Cooksey, Sarah and Greg Nordin, Nick Espinosa, Ashlee and Andy Veit, Jayne and Garrett Johnston, Sam Austin, Carlos Meltzer, and Samantha Lombardo

PC Moment: More than 200 young professionals celebrated the Alley’s 70th season in glamorous ‘70s duds with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from Underbelly — and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the newly renovated theatre, just a year into its rebirth — to benefit the Alley’s education and community engagement programs and artistic initiatives.

DJ Senega kept the crowd moving late into the night. A silent auction included items such as a jersey signed by Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel, tickets to the Polo Club with two custom fedoras, and a $250 gift certificate to Triniti Restaurant.
