After postponing the 5th Annual Broadway Brunch from May to August due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nashville Rep decided to transform their annual fundraiser into an online event.
Broadway Brunch At Night will take place online on August 23, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. kicking off a weeklong giving campaign for Nashville Repertory Theatre. The event is free to the public with a suggested donation.
“Though we are sad we won’t be able to see everyone this year at Broadway Brunch, we are excited to create a fun virtual event for our entire theatre family to join us and support the work of Nashville Repertory Theatre!” said Amos Glass, the Rep’s Director of Community Engagement. “Nashville Rep is Nashville’s professional theatre company, and our goal is to entertain and inspire our audiences while supporting our local performers. Come join the fun as we take our brunch into the night!”
The event will be emceed online by Nashville favorite Megan Murphy Chambers. Broadway Brunch at Night promises live entertainment, pre-recorded musical numbers from Nashville’s theatrical talent, an expanded silent auction, and other exciting surprises.
Bidding for the silent auction starts August 3, 2020. Auction items include an autographed Toby Keith guitar, a weeklong Virgin Islands Getaway, private wine dinners, original art by Omari Booker, and more.
Restaurant partners like Ellington’s Midway Bar and Grill, Chauhan Ale & Masala House, and The Mockingbird will offer a limited dinner menu for the virtual gala patrons to order and pick up on the day of the event.
