About the Event:
We're proud to announce the inaugural 5th Avenue Theatre Excellence Award, a fundraising event that honors the award-winning broadcaster, newspaper columnist and business leader Patti Payne, and benefits one of The 5th's education programs that Patti is most passionate about: Rising Star Project.
Two Ways to Honor Patti and Support The 5th Avenue Theatre's Rising Star Project:
A Different Type of Fundraising Event:
We are pleased to present this new model for fundraising in Seattle. No auctions. No raffles. No Raise the Paddle on the night of the event. Just bring yourself and your friends, "leave your checkbook at home" and get ready to enjoy a delightful evening celebrating one of Seattle's original women of influence: Patti Payne!
About Rising Star Project:
All fundraising for this event benefits The 5th Avenue Theatre's Rising Star Project, the cornerstone of The 5th's education programs since its inception in 2011. Completely tuition-free, Rising Star Project immerses high school students in the world of musical theater and, through director mentorship and hands-on learning opportunities, they emerge as confident leaders, competent professionals and connected human beings.

Our Online Auction is now open! Check out the wide array of packages--from weekend getaways to exclusive opportunities you will find Only at The 5th!
Patron-level members ($600+) will visit the spaces rarely seen by the public: our Costume Shop, Hair and Makeup areas, and the actors' dressing rooms and more. Travel the path of an actor, peek into the normally closed doors, and find out even more about the historic 5th Avenue Theatre on this exclusive look behind the scenes.
Friend-level members ($125+) join us for a guided tour of the theater--including backstage and the opportunity to come onstage for a closer look at the sets and props.
Our tour guides will lead you through the history of the theatre, dive into fun facts about the current show, and share some of the magic of how The 5th Avenue puts on a musical.

Come enjoy a guided tour of our two warehouses in Kent with 5th Avenue Production Manager and Tech Director. You’ll get up close and personal with a treasure trove of props, sets, and costumes from your favorite productions.
Partner-level members ($300+) enjoy a wine and cheese reception and hear from members of the creative team about their artistic vision. Writers and composers delve into the process of a show from day one, designers share the decisions and processes to creating the sets, costumes, or lights for a show, or directors describe the show from rehearsals to the final product.
Friend-level members ($125+) will join us at working rehearsals in the theater and watch as the final pieces of the show all come together to create the final product presented to our audiences. Before we head into the theatre, artistic leadership for the production will give pre-rehearsal talk to share even more details.
Patron-level members ($600+) are invited to come to the theatre early for a reception before the rehearsal begins.
