Party like it's 1922
The Owl and Cat Theatre have put the fun back into fundraising by kicking off 2017 with a bash to finance their energetic and independent program of world premiere plays. Comedian Tom Ballard and drag queen Pollyfilla headline this speakeasy-themed night of nights on January 28 in The Oratory at Abbotsford Convent.

The Owl and Cat Fundraising Gala
Tom Ballard
Try your hand at blackjack, dance with showgirls and dodge the paparazzi as you party like it's 1922! The night is chockers with art auctions, live portrait painting, door prizes, circus performers, magic, tap, cabaret and burlesque. Phew!

As if all this isn't enough, there is a themed photo booth (don't forget to dress up), champagne on arrival, canapes, and a ribbon cutting ceremony by...shhhh, it's a secret!

The Owl and Cat Theatre was established by Gabrielle Savrone and Thomas Ian Doyle in 2014. It's mission is to produce new work, cultivate an inclusive community, and create accessible career platforms for artists. The work created is culturally relevant, socially engaged, and encourages thought, conversation and acceptance.

As well as mainstage shows, The Owl and Cat Theatre runs acting classes, art exhibitions, performance development opportunities, and special performance events. They do all of this independently - which is why this fundraiser is so important to the theatre and to the arts community of Melbourne.

The event is general admission but there is limited VIP seating available. Don't miss this trip back to the roaring twenties. Come and party with The Owl and Cat and keep independent theatre alive and healthy in Melbourne.
