Encore is International City Theatre’s Board of Directors’ signature annual, major fundraising event. All proceeds support ICT’s many education programs and productions. Our programs reach 30,000 people a year from every economic and geographic area of the city, as well as surrounding communities from Los Angeles to Orange County.

The event itself is business attire and consists of:

•  Cocktails and a special reception
•  Gourmet Dinner
•  Silent and Live Auctions
•  Entertainment

Encore is a glamorous evening attended by many leading members of the community. ICT is a non-profit theatre (501(c)(3)), and funds raised support our productions and education programs for children, families and seniors.

The James Ackerman Crystal Arts and Humanitarian Award:

ICT acknowledges outstanding members of the community who have made significant contributions to the cultural life of this city and International City Theatre.

Exceptional.   Elegant.   Extraordinary.   ENCORE!
