Special Events and Fundraisers

When you attend a benefit or other special event at Playhouse Square, you’re sure to enjoy an unforgettable experience. Whether it’s dining on stage, witnessing a Broadway blockbuster from the best seats in the house and celebrating with the cast after the show; mixing and mingling at our annual Jump Back Ball; or hitting the links at our golf outing, you’ll have a fantastic time and help to support the not-for-profit mission of Playhouse Square.

Center Stage Benefit

Playhouse Square hosts one major fundraiser each year to support our innovative arts education programs. The event includes a cocktail reception, seated dinner on one of lobbies or stages, a VIP performance, and a dessert party with live entertainment and dancing. Save the date for the 2023 benefit: June 10, 2023.  The evening will feature a full performance of Moulin Rouge The Musical, part of the KeyBank Broadway Series. Proceeds will benefit Playhouse Square's art education programs and community outreach initatives, bringing valuable arts learning resources and opportunities to audiences of all ages and abilities.
