An Evening with Starlight

An Evening with Starlight

October 10, 2020

RSVP    Donate
Show Time: 7 p.m.


In lieu of an in-person gala this year, we're bringing the show to you! An Evening with Starlight: The Sky's the Limit is a free online benefit supporting Starlight. The event will feature performances and testimonials from those who have a Starlight story – headline artists, Broadway performers, musicians, student artists and more!

Attendance is free, but donations are encouraged. Charitable gifts do more than sustain and enhance an iconic Kansas City landmark. Community support helps fund arts education and community engagement programs that provide access to Starlight and the arts, teach skills the performing arts are uniquely positioned to provide, inspire future arts patrons and foster a sense of civic pride.

We hope you’ll join us to support Starlight in a different way this year by tuning in to this special digital event. Click the 'Buy Tickets' button to RSVP for An Evening with Starlight and receive announcements, updates and event reminders. An Evening with Starlight will premiere online on October 10 at 7 p.m. Central Time on Facebook at  facebook.com/kcstarlight and on YouTube at youtube.com/kcstarlight.
