2024 Gala – A Night of Lift

Lift your glass while we lift your hearts (& wallets)!

BWTC is thrilled to announce our 2024 gala! Join us for a 1920s speakeasy night in your best flapper dress, for mug shots, fabulous and fun auction items, delicious charcuterie, drinks and excellent performances by our youth…& be home before bedtime!

Our Goal, Our Lift

Our goal is the same as our theme – lift. As with many arts organizations, we are still lifting out of the pandemic with a need to raise $60,000 to continue to provide excellent education and opportunities for the growing number of kids showing up for our auditions and classes each year.

Master of Ceremonies

 C.C. Rode was a member of BWTC during its first 4 years of operation. Many remember her time there for her improvisation on stage when something didn’t go as planned. She grew as an actress and a leader. After graduating from Wayzata High School in 2011, C.C. attended the University of St. Thomas for a degree in Communication and Journalism. She is now a Lifestyle TV Producer with Minnesota Live and Twin Cities Live at KSTP-TV. She loves telling stories and making quick changes behind the scenes when something doesn’t go as planned – notice a pattern? She will forever be thankful to her parents and grandparents for the opportunity to play on the stage in her youth – at BWTC and other theater experiences in the metro.
