This unique (and hopefully recurring) event will highlight the best of the Saint John Arts Community, and boy do we have some great talent!  It should be a fun evening of mingling and a bit of glamour.  Plus, the event will highlight both the anglophone and francophone communities and will feature Brent Bambury as host.

Details of the event can be found below from an article published in the Telegraph Journal on May 15th:
The Originals red carpet gala at Imperial Theatre
