Hosted by the Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board


 The Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board hosts their annual Devil’s Ball, the first public event at the theatre since its temporary closure in March of 2020. All proceeds benefit the restoration and preservation of the National Historic Landmark Auditorium Theatre.

This year's theme, Roaring Back, is a revival of the spirit of the 1920s and signals the return of arts and culture to the theatre following its year-and-a-half long closure during COVID-19. Devil’s Ball is hosted annually by the Auxiliary Board, a dedicated group of young professionals devoted to raising awareness and generating support for the Auditorium Theatre.

The event takes place on the historic Landmark Stage that has welcomed legendary performances from Prince, American Ballet TheatreDavid BowieAlvin Ailey American Dance TheaterBernadette PetersChance the RapperKathleen Battle, and many more. 

Event highlights include Gatsby-themed cocktails, fabulous nosh, live jazzy tunes, a photo booth, silent auction, wine raffle, behind-the-scenes tours, a surprise pop-up performance, and dancing beneath the architectural brilliance of the theatre!

Come celebrate the re-opening of the theatre - we cannot wait to welcome you back! 

This year’s event is dedicated in memory of Edward S. Weil, Jr., our longest serving Board Member and great grandson of architect Dankmar Adler.
