Studio Tenn Extends Invitation to its Annual Award-Winning Gala One Night Only 2017 With The Loft Party

Franklin, TN – Studio Tenn’s annual fundraising gala, One Night Only, returns to Liberty Hall at The Factory at Franklin in Franklin, TN, on October 20, 2017. Winner of multiple NFocus Nashville’s Best Parties 2016 awards, including “Best Entertainment” and “Best Reminder of Nashville’s Talent,” the dazzling evening of live entertainment is hailed as the most highly anticipated social and philanthropic events of the season.
One Night Only features an incomparable night of live entertainment, food, drinks and a silent auction to support the eighth season of Middle Tennessee’s very own world-class professional theatre company. This year’s One Night Only will be tastefully decked in blue and gold, and welcomes the best of Broadway and Nashville talent to the stage, including Eden Espinosa, Mike Eldred, Diana DeGarmo, Kyle Dean Massey, Melinda Doolittle and more.
Studio Tenn’s Artistic Director, Matt Logan, says that the evening’s growing popularity has led to the 2017 One Night Only being bigger and better than ever.
“We’ve never had an interest this large going into the event,” said Logan. “Tables starting selling so rapidly, we had to quickly find a way to expand the room to accommodate more guests, which is how the new Loft Party was created.”
A new addition to this year’s gala, Studio Tenn introduces the One Night Only Loft Party to invite a greater number of people to enjoy Nashville’s best bash. For only $100, Loft Party guests can join the celebration at 8 p.m. for the fabulous entertainment and auction, an open bar, hors devours and more. With a spectacular view from the balcony, the Loft Party will include seating and standing room availability.
Charlotte Goldston, One Night Only co-chair, said the Loft Party is a great addition to this year’s gala. “The show is so spectacular that patrons are on their feet most of the night with repeated standing ovations, so the standing room in the balcony is going to make for an incredible view. It’s one that would turn Broadway stages green with envy,” said Goldston.  
Driven by the incredible popularity of this event, Studio Tenn has also added superior and premium level seating to the event to accommodate the record breaking attendance of the evening. Tickets start at $225 per person and includes entertainment, an open bar generously provided by Lipman Brothers, a deliciously crafted meal from Sargent’s Catering, and an unparalleled silent auction. The auction is also available online for those not in attendance and customers can begin bidding on items now.
“This is Studio Tenn’s fifth annual One Night Only fundraiser,” said Trish Munro, One Night Only co-chair. “Word is out that this is the best show in town. Invitations were not even mailed out this year because the demand was so high and tickets were taken so quickly.”
One Night Only will also honor Jean and Denny Bottorff, as well as Emily Magid, whose support and advocacy for advancement of the arts in our community have been integral to Studio Tenn’s success.
