What a year!  The world’s not quite ready for us to gather, so join us for our annual Fête – virtually! The past year has been unprecedented, and the Wilma has been in the forefront of reimagining theater in the digital age. Join us to celebrate the Wilma’s incredible adaptation and artistic success and help us continue on as we reinvent ourselves for a new artistic age.

And of course it wouldn’t be a fete without some fun! The evening will feature amazing streamed performances, special guest appearances by our HotHouse members and our Artistic Cohort, and more – all topped off by our fabulous virtual dance party!

Wilma HotHouse Company Members Jaylene Clark Owens (Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale) and Justin Jain (Heroes of the Fourth Turning, Dance Nation) will host the 2021 Fete!

 

The Fête is our main fundraiser for the season, and we rely on the money raised to support our amazing artistic programming as well as our community outreach and educational programs that serve so many of our Philadelphia neighbors during this difficult and isolating time. Your attendance and support is critical to keeping the Wilma open until we can meet in person once more.

For questions, email events@wilmatheater.org.

Can’t make it April 11? Consider a donation in support of the Wilma’s daring artistic vision.
