A Modern Salon

January 10, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm



Join SPT Theatre and special guests Alex Schulte and Adam Witte for a lively evening of hilarious stories, engaging conversation, and outstanding music centered around the theme. 

Emulating the Parisian salons at the turn of the twentieth century, A Modern Salon is held in the mansion’s Great Hall, where Brucemore’s second family, the Douglases, frequently entertained guests. Enjoy hor d’oeuvres and desserts from Wright Touch Bake Shoppe, and a tasting of wines from 1st Avenue Wine House.

SPT Theatre was founded by Doug Elliott, Gerard Estella, Janelle Lauer, and Jane Pini, four local performing artists looking to expand artistic opportunities for both performers and audiences in the Cultural Corridor. They have dazzled audiences with their original productions throughout the area.
