The World Wide Technology Foundation and the Steward Family Foundation will underwrite the performance.

One of Broadway’s brightest stars, Peters received both the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for her critically acclaimed performance in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical Song and Dance. In June 1999, Peters earned her second Tony Award, her third Drama Desk Award, and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her portrayal of Annie Oakley in one of Broadway’s most popular musicals, the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun.

Peters currently stars in Amazon Prime’s hit TV series, Mozart in the Jungle, which won the 2016 Golden Globe for Best TV Comedy or Musical series.

General tickets for the gala start at $500, which includes a black-tie dinner and a performance by Peters. Patron-level tickets — which feature preferred seating for the performance — are $1,500 per couple. A sponsor-level table for 10 is $10,000.

Tickets will be available June 1.

The gala commemorates the 50th anniversary of The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, which launched its first performances in 1966. The Rep’s 50th season begins in September with the Stephen Sondheim musical Follies, whose 2011 revival featured an acclaimed performance by Peters.

“Bernadette Peters is a legendary star befitting a golden anniversary event,” Rep Artistic Director Steven Woolf said. “We are honored to have her perform at our gala and cannot wait to watch as she shares her talent with our generous supporters.”

The Rep’s 50th Anniversary Gala co-chairs are Cathy and Jim Berges, Cheri and Ron Fromm, Ann and Hugh Scott and Lynn and Doug Yaeger.
