The Center Theatre recently announced that after a hiatus of 8 years, there will be a formal Valentine's Ball in the newly renovated Commons Event Center at Central Hall in Dover-Foxcroft. The event will take place on Saturday, February 9th from 8 AM to 11 PM. Very danceable music will be provided by Deb Maynard's Little Big Band. Light hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and a chocolate fountain will be on hand to keep up guests energy levels as well as a cash bar by Pat's Pizza for those who need additional lubrication to join the dance floor.
The event will benefit the Center Theatre for the Performing Arts and their mission of making arts, culture, education, and entertainment accessible to our rural communities. Patrick Myers, the Center Theatre's Executive Director, said he has heard many people talk about the Valentine's Balls from 10 years ago, and that the Theatre wants to bring back the tradition. "Many people on our board and staff were at the last Valentine's Ball in 2011. I think it was the last event held at Central Hall before it was closed for renovations. Now that the Hall is back again and such a great resource for our community, the Center Theatre wanted to host a Valentine Ball to close that circle and continue the fun."
Myers said that it is a formal, 21+ event. Tickets are $30 per person, $50 per couple, with a table of 8 costing $200. Seating is limited so Myers suggests attendees get their tickets early. Tickets are available at the Theatre's website at, at the Center Theatre Box Office, or at Chloe's Collection at 1 North Sreet in Dover-Foxcroft. Chloe's Collections is also available for formal wear rentals, flowers, and all Ball needs and will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Center Theatre.
