About the Event

As our primary fundraiser of the year, Cocktails & Cabaret hopes to raise the critical funds to support First Act Theatre Art’s commitment to helping students establish themselves as the main character of their own story…by cultivating their unique talents, helping them to navigate and build community, developing character, building self-esteem, and setting the stage for success for the rest of their lives.


All proceeds from the evening will go toward scholarships, program expansion, and studio improvements.

Sponsorship Opportunities

When you or your organization partners with First Act Theatre Arts, you are setting the stage for success as we carry out our mission – to encourage excellence in the theatrical arts, foster character and build community through training, performance, and fellowship in a faith-based environment.
