Our ‘Twas the Night Gala is the premiere annual fundraising event for Theatre Orangeville. Proceeds from this spectacular event go towards supporting our Mainstage and Youth Academy programming.

The ‘Twas the Night Gala begins with complimentary champagne, festive music and mingling with fellow guests, dressed in their best!

Hors d’oeuvres are served while browsing and bidding on the abundance of Silent Auction items, all while being serenaded by the T.O.Y.S. choir singing your Christmas favourites. Don’t forget to buy tickets for our exciting draws!

When the dinner bell rings, guests are invited to fill the banquet hall to enjoy a fine meal and accompanying wine. Additionally, a cash bar is open. During the dinner, the best entertainment is David Nairn himself as auctioneer for the Live Auction items, lovingly curated to entice any range of interests, including theatre packages to Shaw and Stratford, spa getaways, exclusive box Hockey seats and other surprise delights! Then, of course, there is unforgettable entertainment by some of Theatre Orangeville's favourite artists, as well as the stars of our Young Company.

‘Twas the Night Gala is an evening—and event—like no other.

Event takes place at the Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn & Suites
