Gavin Creel: Coming Home to You @ Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
May 1 @ 7:00 pm

Tony Award-nominated actor and singer Gavin Creel will be the special guest at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ Fundraising Reception at 9 p.m. Monday, May 1, at Dietsch Brothers, 400 W. Main Cross St.

The event follows the sold-out 7 p.m. “Gavin Creel: Coming Home to You” performance at the Marathon Center, 200 W. Main Cross St.

The Marathon Center said the reception is likely to be a low-key event where attendees have the opportunity to meet Creel, whose stage credits include “The Book of Mormon,” “Hair,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and “Hello, Dolly!”

Posters will also be sold during the performance to benefit the Marathon Center, with some limited-edition posters signed by Creel.

It is not a requirement to see the show to purchase reception tickets, but a reception ticket is not a substitute for a performance ticket, which needed to be purchased separately.

Reception tickets cost $100 and can be purchased at the Marathon Center’s box office, which is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and they will also be sold when the building opens for the show. They are also available by calling the box office at 419-423-2787 or ordering online at www.marathoncenterarts.org.

If you choose to have a reception ticket emailed to you before the show, have it printed out by 5 p.m. May 1. Will call will not be available.

All proceeds benefit the Marathon Center Endowment Fund.
