Following the Gala, The Ridgefield Playhouse will honor Anita and Nick Donofrio of Ridgefield as this year’s Gala honorees and Kerry Anne Ducey, founder and CEO of HamletHub will be awarded the Arts Volunteer Award. Tickets can also be purchased for the 8pm performance only.

With his Holiday Rocks! Tour, ionic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy-award-winner Brian Setzer brings a night of chart-topping hits including “Stray Cat Strut,” “Rock This Town,” “Jump Jive An’ Wail” along with holiday tunes from his album “Rockin’ Rudolph.” Setzer is credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80’s and swing in the ’90’s). Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. This night is guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit!
