What is ENCORE Soirée? 

Because our original production was rained out in its intended form, the McGovern Centennial Gardens administration offered us a second date to perform. Fingers crossed for a dry evening!

This performance is free and open to the public. Invite your family and friends.

Unlike the June 3rd event, we do not have access to the Cherie Flores Pavilion. Please travel light, bringing as few personal items as possible and preferably leaving those with a friend during the performance.

McGovern Centennial Gardens at Hermann Park

How Do We Soirée?

What do I wear to perform?

 Adults wear costumes developed by Ashley Horn.

Just invite them! The park is open to the public until 7 PM.


What else do I need to know? 

That you are fabulous for sharing your art. That making art and making it available to others is what makes life more than subsistence. You are elevating the experience of being a person here and now for all of the people who experience this performance. Good work. Thank you.
