2024 FUNdraiser for The Human Race Theatre Company

Come play along with the theatre you love.

Join the staff and board of The Human Race Theatre Company at a one-of-a-kind fundraising event that will leave you buzzing! Brush up on your Broadway and Karaoke favorites for two rounds of Music Trivia, then stay for a live(ly) auction hosted by Resident Artist and professional auctioneer Tim Lile and to mix and mingle with fellow theatre lovers.

Plan to celebrate with us on Friday, May 17, 2024, from 6 PM to 10 PM at The Loft Theatre (126 N. Main Street, 3rd Floor, Dayton, OH 45402) as we head into our 39th season! We celebrate what brought us here and raise a toast to where we’re going next with our company and our community.

Do you have what it takes to be our first certified human?

After an evening full of joy, creative fellowship, and innocent competition, stay for the first ever recognition as a Certified Human, cementing your place as a top fan of The Human Race Theatre Company. The winning bid will be commemorated in our lobby alongside a newly commissioned artwork made in collaboration with Dustin Wagner from Nyminal Glass. In this world of AI and deep fakes, let us endorse you as the real deal – no physical required! Be the first inductee of this new tradition!

Celebrate with us as we head into the 39th season.
