Onstage at the G
Granada Theatre benefactors Roger and Sarah Chrisman hosted the first of a three-part series, Onstage at the G, with 85 guests dining at the cavernous locale with scrumptious food from the Catering Connection.
Previously the theater hosted Upstairs at the G in the McCune Founder Room, but the capacity was limited to 40, with the stage event accommodating up to 100 guests.
“We are having two other events in April and May and hopefully introducing more people to the theater,” says Caren Rager, the popular venue’s Chrisman Executive Director.
Kicking off the debut bash and definitely adding sax appeal was Portland, Oregon, jazz musician Jessy J and her four-piece band, who played as part of the upstairs series.
Among those on stage were Gretchen Lieff and Miles Hartfeld, Brooks and Kate Firestone, Palmer and Susan Jackson, Chris Lancashire, Anne Luther, Kathryn Martin, Joan Rutkowski, Kristi Newton, Lynn Kirst, Nick Jackson and Lisa Presnell, Ruth Ann Bowe, Dana Hansen, and John Stegall.
