Live Oak Theatre’s Night in Vienna, its scholarship fundraiser, which had been postponed, is now scheduled for Saturday evening, May 4. Dancing begins at 8 pm and will feature a complete Viennese experience. The ball will provide entertainment on both levels of the Carol & Frank Morsani Center located at 21030 Cortez Boulevard, Brooksville, Florida 34601. A delectable selection of hors d’oeuvres similar to what you would find in a ball in Vienna will be provided by Continental Catering. All refreshments will be served on the verandaoverlooking the garden area. Complimentary coffee, tea and dessert will also be served and there will be a cash bar.
The floor of the theatre will be cleared, and patrons will dance to the DJ talents of Jason Sager, who will play a selection of modern dance music. The Grand Ballroom will feature ballroom and swing style music and the vocal and musical talent of Live Oak Theatre and conservatory faculty and students. Members of the Live Oak Conservatory will provide tributes to such artists as Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, and Harry Connick, Jr. Hernando County’s own Stephanie Barnett Sager and Randi Olsen will perform a wide range of classical and Broadway ballroom tunes.
Cake decoration contest.
The Viennese ball will also feature a Viennese cake decoration contest. Members of the community are invited to enter the cake contest and provide samples for an audience chance award. A prize will be offered for the cake chosen by the audience as the best cake of the evening. Cakes will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
