Gala raises funds for Shakespeare Education Program in area schools


Fifteen serving wenches, 30 models, three clothing designers, four salons, seven YMCA helpers -- 110 local volunteers in total -- will come together in the service of the Shakespeare Education Program in Walla Walla schools.

Elizabethan-inspired food, fashion and merriment will be provided 5:30-9 p.m. May 18 at the newly renovated Powerhouse Theatre, Sixth and Rose streets.

Guests will be invited to don masks, and female guests will be able to have hair and eyelash accessories by stylists from Misbehaven Salon and Spa if they choose. All guests are encouraged to attend, masked or unmasked.

Walla Walla Lifestyles will present an Elizabethan-inspired fashion show with three period looks from the social classes represented in the Shakespeare Walla Walla production of "The Merry Wives of Windsor."

A Renaissance-inspired sit-down dinner will follow the fashion show, including wine and other beverages.

A portion of the $200 ticket price goes to the Shakespeare Education Program and includes a ticket to "The Merry Wives of Windsor," and $110 covers the food, wine and entertainment.

Tickets are available at and at the Tourism Walla Walla information booth next to Starbucks on Main Street.
