We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who joined us for our various POTUS special events. Your presence and participation added extra excitement and significance to this relatable farce.

Event #1: Chucks and Pearls Night

We rang in Vice President Kamala Harris’ birthday on October 20 by pairing Converse sneakers with our favorite pearls. You all came out in your finest for VPOTUS, helping us kick off POTUS with a well-dressed bang.

Event #2: Pantsuit Night

We then celebrated Hillary Clinton’s birthday on October 26, donning her signature look. Audiences did the former Secretary of State, Senator, and First Lady proud in their fiercest pantsuit (or a pantsuit-adjacent ensemble).

Event #3: Halloween

We made Halloween night unforgettable with a costume-encouraged performance topped off with sweet treats! We even had someone dress as a previous Arena production character…Ricky Potts (from Ride the Cyclone) will always be our “Space Age Bachelor Man” <3. 

Event #4: D.C. Trivia with District Trivia

White House history buffs united to compete in a trivia contest to win some presidential-level prizes. Fun fact: Our winners were Arena newbies! We’re so excited to welcome them back to use their 3-play subscription prize.

We hope you enjoyed POTUS and its special events as much as we enjoyed sharing them with you. It’s your enthusiasm and support that fuels Arena, and we couldn’t have asked for a more engaged audience.
