PROVIDENCE – Billed as “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life,” Martin Short and Steve Martin will host this year’s Providence Performing Arts Center Annual Gala.

A fundraiser for the theater and a black-tie optional affair, gala tickets include seating for the main performance by Short and Martin as well as entry to the post-show PPAC party and parking.

The event will take place Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m.

Gala tickets are tax deductible and may be purchased for $300 each. Non-gala tickets act as entry to the Short and Martin performance only and range in price from $250 to $58, with a $3 per ticket restoration charge. Either ticket denomination can be purchased from Donna Santos, PPAC director of ticketing, at dsantos@ppacri.org.
