North Coast Repertory Gala

The evening of June 4th, 2022, the North Coast Repertory Theatre held its annual Spotlight Gala at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. It was a festive evening with a lively reception, serving cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while guests had the opportunity to select from an array of fanciful items at the silent auction.


North Coast Rep’s Event Fundraising is another way to raise philanthropic revenue. The volunteer Gala Committee prepares a festive evening with auctions, fine food and wine, and special entertainment to create a one-of-a-kind event. Through the generosity of patrons, auction bidders, and event sponsors, North Coast Rep raises more than a third of our total annual budget for donated income at this event.

Honorary Chair: Jamie Carr

Gala Chairs: Laura Applegate and Sarah King

Champion for the Arts Award: Jeanette Stevens, Pam and Hal Fuson


A seated, plated dinner was served in the ballroom. After dinner, auctioneer Clint Bell will conduct the live auction and fund-a-need segment. Throughout the evening some of the Rep's favorite actors entertained guests with musical performances from favorite North Coast Rep productions celebrating the Rep's 40th Anniversary Season. It was an evening of fun and frivolity enlivened by the performers staging a musical comedy.
