Ballet Austin



Doors Open at 8pm
JW Marriott Austin


Be prepared for an extraordinary evening with décor, food and beverage offerings themed around Ballet Austin Artistic Director/Choreographer Stephen Mills’ landmark dance work Hamlet.

fête*ish, the companion party to Fête, is the scratch-on-the-record… the twisted sister… the naughtier, more rebellious part of the evening. Fête is regal and royal. fête*ish is Rock & Roll. As the events combine around 9pm, expect twists, turns, and a surprise around every corner. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event experience, as tickets typically sell out!

September 18, 2015 from 8p–12a
fête*ish Chairs  |  Laura Villagran Johnson and Kevin Smothers

8p  |  Pick Your Poison with Killer Cocktails & Small Bites, and try your hand at The Skull Pull to unearth a most excellent surprise

9p  |  Prepare to Royally Rock to the sounds of Uptown Drive

12am  |  Goodnight, Sweet Prince
