2021-2022 Annual Benefit

Sunday, May 22, 2022 6PM

This year's Annual Benefit will take you for a walk down Memphis’ iconic Beale Street and the city from which playwright Katori Hall drew great inspiration for The Hot Wing King. With a nod towards the play’s Southern charm, Studio will be hosting our very own wing festival and tasting contest, followed by a Memphis-style seated meal, culminating with a dessert reception and live musical treat.

Proceeds from this fundraising event will support everything Studio Theatre does to present, advance, and promote exemplary contemporary theatre in the nation’s capital.

Befitting the easy vibes of Memphis, casual attire and denim are welcome.

Single tickets for the Annual Benefit are $350 per person, which includes the wing festival, seated buffet dinner, and dessert reception.

Health & Safety: Proof of vaccination and a form of ID are required. Because The Benefit is food focused, we ask that guests take an at-home COVID-19 antigen test within 24 hours of the event and bring a photo of their negative test result on their phone to display upon entry at Studio. Masking will be optional.
