Ooh la la! Come celebrate the City of Love with us! In 2024, Paris will host the Summer Olympics and mark the 135th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower and the 80th anniversary of D-Day, and we all know its place in the arts, culture, cuisine, and history, so that is the theme for Arts For Life’s annual Trivia Night on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2024.
The event will take place at the Kirkwood Community Center, 111 S. Geyer Road, St. Louis, with doors open at 6:30 p.m. and 10 rounds of general-knowledge questions to begin at 7 p.m.
Cash prizes will be awarded to first and second place teams. There will be a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, mulligans available, and a costume contest.
Feel free to dress up as any French character in entertainment or real life. Vive la France!
Nominations will be announced for the annual Theatre Mask Awards (plays) and Best Performance Awards (musicals) honoring excellence in community theater and youth productions during 2023
