Irvine Barclay Theatre
Since 1990, Irvine Barclay Theatre (IBT) has established itself as one of Southern California's most imaginative and popular performing arts venues. Featuring an eclectic mix of music, dance, and theatre, it offers the community the rare opportunity to experience world-class performances in a beautiful, intimate, "jewel box" venue, close to home, and all at affordable prices. The Barclay proudly celebrates 30 years as your home for the performing arts in Orange County.
The IBT tree celebrates our belief that performing arts are essential and is inspired by our jewel box theater. The décor combines rich jewel-tone colors with trimmings that showcase all of the many art forms - music, dance, theatre and more - that have graced the Barclay stage for three decades.
Dripping in "gems" and tiny ornament treasures, the tree includes: a 24k gold-plated mini-saxophone with real crystals (a special nod to the Barclay's saxophone-playing leadership duo, Jerry Mandel and Craig Springer), unique multi-colored bejeweled topper by Cody Foster & Co. (a $180 value), dozens of miniature instruments with amazing details - tiny guitars, brass horns, pianos, drum and more - including a cello with bow in its own velvet-lined case, authentic opera glasses, and a small sleigh under its bows.
Along with the whimsically adorned tree, special treats for the winning bidder include:
- "An Evening at The Barclay" - This date night package for two includes: VIP treatment at an IBT presented show with parking, premium tickets, access to all Gold Bar perks (complimentary cocktails & refreshments in our private bar area)., An invitation to artist event (meet and greet, post-show reception, etc.) PLUS dinner at Bistango Restaurant in Irvine. (approx. value: $400.) (*Dates and details TBD based upon venue re-opening guidelines. IBT will work directly with the winning bidder to schedule.)
- PLUS - Seat-naming rights for two of the brand-new chairs in our jewel box theater auditorium. ($500 value)
