APAC’s 2018 Gala- Old Friends


For our 17th season, APAC brings together some of our oldest friends, as we honor and celebrate the people that help make Astoria a vibrant artistic community.

In May, APAC returns to the work of Stephen Sondheim with our mainstage production of Follies. Taking our cue from a song in another Sondheim musical, Merrily We Roll Along, which APAC produced in 2015, the theme of our 2018 Gala is Old Friends. This is especially fitting, as Follies marks our final mainstage production at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, a place where we have made many memories and lasting friendships. This year we’re delighted to be honoring an extraordinary community leader and true champion of APAC, NYC Council Member Costa Constantinides. We will also take the opportunity to honor some old friends from our community of volunteers — Anthony Argento, Jenny Lando, and Julie & Brian Shea — all of whom are incredibly worthy of our thanks. The evening will feature the music of Stephen Sondheim, performed by APAC alumni, as well as cocktails and dinner from Astoria’s own Salt & Bone Smokehouse and Crescent Wines & Spirits. We hope you will join as we honor some of the friends who’ve helped APAC thrive, and toast our exciting future in a new home!
