“We’ve changed the format for the evening to lead with the unveiling presentation followed by hors d’oeuvres and entertainment,” Morelli explains. “Our guests are excited to learn of the upcoming shows and enjoy visiting with each other after the unveiling, so we have accommodated them. During this same time, they can also purchase tickets for the season.”
