Backstage Tour: A few times a year, The Bushnell invites Silver donors (and above) to take a peek behind the curtain. From the spotlight and projection room to the star’s dressing room, you’ll learn about what it takes to pull off a touring production and get the scoop on some of the big celebrities who have graced our stages. Donors at the Platinum level and above can even schedule a private backstage tour for up to 15 people.
Bushnell On The Road: We bring The Bushnell to you! Join us at restaurants across the region when we host happy-hour style conversations with key members of The Bushnell’s leadership team.
Bushnell Studio: Come to The Bushnell to learn from folks in the industry and our Master Teaching Artists. Previous Bushnell Studio events have included classes in multi-media collage and block printing.
Celebration of Giving: Each year we recognize Bushnell donors at the Platinum level and above with a dinner and private performance. Learn how you can get your invite, today!
Load-in & Lunch*: Donors are invited to join us as we host members of the cast, crew or production team from the shows on our stages. This is your opportunity to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to know about being part of a Broadway touring show and life on the road
Overture: These donor-only, pre-show cocktail receptions are the perfect opportunity to connect with others who love the performing arts or to simply have a glass of wine before the performance begins.
Season Announcement Event: Be the first to know of the shows that will be hitting Bushnell stages in the upcoming season and enjoy sneak peek performances from those who make these shows possible.
