Saenger Theatre to Celebrate Grand Opening Gala and Special Performance starring Kristin Chenoweth

October 5, 2013

The Grand Opening Gala on Thursday, Oct. 3 will kick-off the official Saenger Theatre opening festivities with cocktails beginning at 6 p.m. and a VIP dinner at 7 p.m. All proceeds from the Grand Opening Gala will benefit the “Friends of the Saenger Theatre New Orleans,” funding the preservation of the historic theatre and the restoration of its famed theatre organ, the Robert Morton Wonder Organ.

Following the Grand Opening Gala, the celebrations will continue with a special concert on Saturday, Oct. 5 featuring Emmy and Tony Award-winner, Kristin Chenoweth.  Chenoweth is known for her roles on stage, television and film. She made her Broadway debut in Steel Pier and is known for originating the role of Glinda in the musical Wicked, as well as for her roles in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, The Apple Tree and Promises, Promises. An Oklahoma Hall of Fame Inductee, she received rave reviews for her role in the ABC series “Pushing Daisies,” for which she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Chenoweth has guest starred on many notable shows, including Fox’s comedy Glee, earning her two Emmy Award nominations and a People’s Choice Award nomination in the category of Favorite TV Guest Star. She has also starred as Annabeth Schott on the hit drama, “The West Wing” and appeared as a guest judge on “American Idol.”

The public is invited to purchase tickets to both the Grand Opening Gala and the Kristin Chenoweth show. Individuals purchasing tickets to the Oct. 3 Grand Opening Gala will also receive tickets to the Oct. 5 concert featuring Kristin Chenoweth and to an exclusive, VIP Pre-Show Reception.
