2017 Gala: Broadway in Bethesda
Steppin’ Out with Ben Vereen

“Because of you, the arts are alive and doing very well in Bethesda. The world is a different place because of your support of the arts.  Remember that value that you give to some child somewhere who’s looked to the arts to change their life. You’re making it possible by supporting this theatre.” -Ben Vereen at the Round House Gala

Thank you especially to everyone who made a pledge to our Play It Forward initiative, allowing us to develop the next generation of theatre artists, audiences, and administrators. Congratulations as well to our auction winners! We are very happy to announce that this gala set a Round House record for both highest gross revenue and highest net revenue.

We were delighted to celebrate Cathy Bernard and her many contributions to our community at the Dinner on Stage event on November 5, 2016. We hope you enjoyed the behind-the-scenes tours; breathtaking performances by Alyssa Wilmoth Keegan, Felicia Curry, and Nova Y. Payton; and memorable dinner on stage.
