North Coast Rep’s Spotlight Gala to be held at Del Mar Country Club

The Spotlight Gala benefiting North Coast Repertory Theatre will be held on Sunday, April 27, at Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe. The featured entertainer will be Obba Babatundé, an American actor known for his work on stage and screen. During the course of his storied career, Babatundé has received national acclaim as well as Tony and Emmy award nominations. Babatundé dances, sings, plays musical instruments and does impersonations.

North Coast Rep’s gala features a cocktail reception, silent auction, sumptuous sit-down dinner, live auction and entertainment by Babatundé and a three-piece combo.

Gala organizers are pleased to have secured Babatundé.  An actor, producer and director, he has been referred to as one of the busiest actors in Hollywood. Theater audiences will know his work from his Tony-nominated role as C.C. White in the original Broadway cast of Dreamgirls. Other noted stage performances have been in Hal Prince’s Grind; as the originator of the role of Jelly Roll Morton in Jelly’s Last Jam; as Billy Flynn in Chicago; and, in 2009, the critically-acclaimed role as Sammy Davis Jr., in the Old Globe production of Sammy.

Tickets to North Coast Rep’s gala start at $250 per person and include a sitdown dinner, silent and live auctions, Artists’ Advocacy and much more. Premium tickets are available at $300 each. For tickets or information, call Katherine Hsia at 858-481-2155, Ext. 211, or e-mail her at
