On Saturday, March 7, 2020, The Bushnell held its annual gala to support our education and community outreach programs throughout Greater Hartford. Little did we know how much would change in the days and weeks to come. A sold-out Ovations 2020 | STARS: 90 Years of The Bushnell, would prove to be last substantial, in-person event of its kind in Hartford. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a full year since we were dressed to the hilt that night, enjoying delicious cocktails, an elegant dining experience and a wildly fun, after-party on Belding Stage.

This year, Ovations 2021 | Secret Garden, will be held on Saturday, March 6, 2021 as a virtual experience, but it will have the same energy and enthusiasm that you’ve come to know and love. We’ll still have a fabulous auction full of fun and unique items, appearances by some of your favorite Bushnell employees, and a chance to dance the night away with your friends after the program. Going online also means we can bring you some of the best and brightest talent from Broadway and beyond—and show you how The Bushnell has played a role in their journey.

It may be a different context, but it’ll still be an evening to remember! We hope you’ll join us to see what’s in store in the Ovations Secret Garden.

Stay tuned for more information!
