Honorary Chairs
Mark and Terri Henneman

The Ordway cordially invites you to the Royal Garden Gala on Thursday, June 27, an event celebrating the sensational musical SIX. Prepare to be transported to the glittering world of the six Tudor queens as you indulge in a royal evening full of history (or should we say “her-story?”), revelry, and a special appearance by some of the talented queens from SIX.

The Gala raises critical funds that will help the Ordway inspire the imaginations of 38,000 schoolchildren this year—through School Matinees, free online lessons, and a variety of in-school programs with artists. Funds raised will also benefit the Arts Partnership—a unique collaboration among the Minnesota Opera, Ordway, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and Schubert Clube—and our collective ability to maintain the Ordway venue and present artists and works that impassion community engagement.
