Known for hosting one of the best New Year’s Eve parties in Santa Clarita, the Repertory East Playhouse is reprising this colorful celebration for the 6th year with Carnivale di Venezia NYC on Saturday, Dec. 31.
Held at the REP theatre located in Old Town Newhall, the festivities begin at 8 pm, with revelers asked to don formal wear and Carnivale-themed masks. This year the evening will have a distinct “Big Apple” vibe as revelers will be transported to the iconic sites and experiences of New York City, including a midnight countdown and ball drop in Times Square.
The evening of music, dance, elegant food and libations is a signature event for the REP, which offers Santa Clarita’s only live professional theatre throughout the year.
“Guests will be able to ring in 2012 at the hottest spot in the Santa Clarita Valley on December 31,” said Ovington Michael Owston, the REP’s co-artistic director. “And for this one night, our guests, whether they be princes or paupers, have the opportunity to dance and mingle with each anonymously in the true tradition of the famous Carnivale of Venice.”
Reservations must be made in advance for this party, and tickets are $60 per person. Included in the ticket price is a petite buffet by RSVP, The Catering Company, complimentary wine by Engelmann Cellars and a champagne toast to ring in the New Year. Mixed drinks and beer will also be available for purchase in The Hydeaway Lounge, the REP’s signature full-service cocktail lounge.
Guests needing Carnivale masks can purchase them locally at A Chorus Line, 23330 Cinema Dr. (661) 253-0300.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.repeastplayhouse.org or by calling (661) 288-0000. The Repertory East Playhouse is located at 24266 Main Street in Newhall, CA. 91321.
