Grand Theatre Hosts Prom Night

44th Annual Grand Gala Welcomes Special Guest Marc Hall

LONDON, ON, May 24, 2018 – The Grand Theatre is thrilled to host the 44th Annual Grand Gala presented by Sterling Marking Products on May 24, 2018.

The sold-out event will honour Marc Hall, whose true-life story inspired PROM QUEEN: THE MUSICAL, announced in February of 2018 as the selection for the Grand’s 2018 High School Project.

Marc will be joined at the Gala by his partner Jerrod, his mother and father, as well as his brother, sister-in-law, and nephew. Other guests of distinction include last year’s Gala honouree, Michael Rubinoff.

“I can’t wait to share this special evening with my family at the Grand and am humbled by London’s support of my story.  It was almost 16 years ago to the day that I successfully won the right to take my boyfriend to Prom. The support from my friends, my family, and my teachers helped me find my voice.  I know the High School Project, through theatre and the arts, gives students the very same opportunity to find their voice,” said Marc Hall.

Proceeds from the Gala support the Grand’s Make a Difference youth programs which include the High School Project as well as the Grand’s 100 Schools Program that tours a professional theatre production to 100 schools at no charge.

Billed as a ‘come WHO you are event,’ Gala attendees have been encouraged to don Prom attire for the evening. Gala Co-chairs Peter Markvoort and Collin Johnstone have led an inspired committee over the past several months to plan a night to remember.

The Gala’s goal of raising $200,000 will be kicked off by Libro Credit Union’s announcement of its continued support as the Lead Community Partner of the Grand’s Make A Difference programs with a commitment of $30,000.
