Ignite your passion for theatre, dance the night away and watch the sparks fly. On Saturday, January 30, join us for the premier event of the year – the Black & White Ball in support of Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. We welcome you to an elegant evening that will set your spirit alight.
Proceeds from the event help Royal MTC ensure vibrant theatre remains accessible to all Manitobans. Following the unprecedented effects of COVID-19, Royal MTC needs you now more than ever. Raise a glass as we raise funds to help keep great theatre on our stage. It’s all for one and one for all at the Black & White Ball.
