The children’s theater and arts education program at 4908 Auburn Ave. will have its annual gala and silent auction on Saturday to help support its shows, after-school programs and summer camps.

To celebrate the occasion, gala-goers will see a one-night only performance of “James and the Giant Peach.”

Tickets are $250 a person. The company will also present singer Mario Arnauz Bonds with its Imagination Award. The Lanham, Md., native was a contestant on the second season of “The Glee Project,” and despite being blind has become a successful musician, songwriter and voiceover artist.

Past recipients of the award include actors Dennis Haysbert and Christopher Reeve.

The event will also include a silent auction, which along with a cocktail reception kicks off the evening at 6:30.

Featured items include the chance to be Nickelodeon CEO for a Day and tickets to see Wynton Marsalis.
