A Laugh Out Loud Benefit

7:00pm | Sunday, February 26, 2023

Join us for an evening of live entertainment to benefit San Jose Playhouse featuring the brightest stars in the Bay Area singing your favorite songs from the anthology of six of America’s greatest divas: Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Liza Minelli, Bette Midler, Chita Rivera, and Carol Burnett.

This benefit fundraiser will feature a sensational cast of Bay Area vocalists performing a show-stopping line-up of songs and moments of stellar comedy, all designed to bring you joy and share an evening of live entertainment together. Plus, during the show you’ll have the opportunity to bid on our fantastic Live Auction items including music, movies, and memorabilia from all our divas and our artists to raise funds for San Jose Playhouse. And to top it all off, in addition to the great eats, cool treats, we’ll share our plans for the rest of 2023 including 100s of San Jose Playhouse events for you to enjoy at 3Below.

Join Us for a Benefit to Revitalize San Jose Playhouse

    On the surface, it may appear as though everything is “business as usual” around here but you’re wise to wonder, “How are the arts surviving this pandemic?” The truth is, we are actively writing the next chapter in our storied history but we need supporters in the producing role. We seek community support to continue and enhance the core work of theatre and education and to implement the lessons learned in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and heightened social justice awareness. 

    As you bid on valuable and entertaining auction items or buy raffle tickets for terrific prizes, your financial support will help secure resources necessary so we may once again:

    • Produce excellence across all programming for our 3 stages for live audiences
    • Creatively deliver theatrical performances and educational activities offering flexibility, accessibility, and outreach to diverse audiences
    • Rebuild administrative, artistic, education, and production teams
    • Implement new safety protocols in all aspects of our work

    Making your pledge for support is easy:

    • When you reserve your ticket for this event (or any San Jose Playhouse event), you’ll have the opportunity to make a donation at check-out
    • At the event, you’ll be able to bid on auction items
    • And you’ll also be able to buy raffle tickets for fun prizes at the event

    Thank you for your support!
