Imagine enjoying a dinner from an upscale restaurant or from the comfort of home while sipping wine, bidding during an online auction and supporting a local theater.

You can do all of that by purchasing a ticket for the “Plated & Staged…A Herberger Theater Experience” on Sunday, May 2. The deadline to register for the event is April 9. Participants can purchase a meal for eight people and two bottles of wine at a local restaurant with patio dining for $2,500. Or you can buy dinner in your home for eight people for $2,200. A culinary team will work with the table host to tailor a four-course menu and chefs will arrive before the event to “final fire” the meal and serve guests.

Another way to support the theater is by purchasing a cocktail box for $150, which comes with a $50 Uber Eats gift card, one bottle of wine and two Herberger Theater Center wine glasses. With this choice you can either pick up the box five to seven days before the event or have it delivered to a location in Maricopa County for $40.

An online auction and virtual livestreamed program will be produced for all guests to participate in starting at 4 p.m. Ticket holders can bid on hotel packages, artwork, wine tastings, outdoor activities and other goodies. Proceeds will benefit the Herberger Theater Center’s youth education and outreach programs.
