Theatre Forward

Greenwich, CTSeptember 9, 2017

Celebration was in the air at the beautiful Greenwich home of Theatre Forward Board Member Pamela Farr and her husband Buford Alexander on Saturday night when they hosted a cocktail party to kick off the 40th Anniversary of Theatre Forward, a nonprofit that advances the American theatre and its communities by providing funding and other resources to the country’s leading nonprofit theatres.

The evening started with cocktails on the terrace before Pam Farr welcomed guests inside. Three time Tony Award nominee Rebecca Luker entertained guests by performing three musical theatre standards accompanied by Anna Ebbesen on the piano.

Bruce E. Whitacre, the Executive Director of Theatre Forward welcomed guests to the celebration and let everyone know that since its founding in 1977 by its 10 founding member theatres, Theatre Forward has striven to advance American theatre and its communities by increasing access and opportunity for all to experience theatre that builds community and sets the stage for individual achievement.  The organization’s focus is twofold: Advancing Strong Theatre and Educating Through Theatre.

This inaugural event launched a series of special programming to commemorate the landmark anniversary of the organization. To learn more about Theatre Forward and the upcoming events including the 2018 Chairman’s Awards Gala please go on our website:
