Brew Ho Ho Holiday Gala Set for December 9

Last year’s BrewHaHa was a surprise-filled evening that rocked through the night at the Hattiesburg Zoo.

When the creative folks of The Hub City Players, Hattiesburg’s professional theatre company, announced their first gala benefit, the idea of dressing up for a super exclusive, adults-only, invitation-only Halloween costume gala spooked the community.

This year, the ultra-exclusive party takes a whole new Christmas twist inviting party-goers to another shenanigan-filled evening titled, “BrewHoHo!” On Dec. 9, partygoers are asked to dress up in their ugliest Christmas sweater and ring in the holiday season at an ultra-hip secret party! 

Sponsored by Southern Beverage, guests will meet in the Saenger lobby at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, to enjoy a complimentary holiday drink before being escorted to the secret venue, where they will party the night away with a glorious buffet, music, dancing, cash bar and special surprises and treats throughout the night, including a VIP gift on departure.

Last year’s costume contest has been replaced by an ugly Christmas sweater competition for the chance to win amazing prizes. Hub City Player’s founding director, Mike Lopinto, is no stranger to amazing events. The creator of the symphony’s award-winning galas, musicals and special events for the arts, his events are always experiences that leave the town talking.

“Last year’s gala was so much fun, we had to do it again,” said Lopinto. “It’s a chance to get away, do something very different, have a great time and support the arts in your community.”

All the fun happens at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9. Tickets are $75 per person or $130 per couple (a $20 savings!) and are now available at Act fast as tickets last year sold out early.
