The St. Vincent Summer Theatre Gala — in its 26th year — is one of the season's most anticipated events.

More than 200 people attended the July 10 benefit that celebrated 47 years of professional theatre at St. Vincent College in Unity.

Outside Robert S. Carey Student Center, the air was cool. Mist covered the ridges, and the landscape was lush and brilliant green.

Inside, Cinderella, the Wolf, Red Riding Hood and other characters mingled with patrons selecting from a gourmet spread and dessert bar.

Then, everyone assembled in the auditorium for Stephen Sondheim's musical fantasy “Into the Woods.”

Co-sponsors were R&L Development Co. and First Commonwealth Bank — co-chairpersons were Andy and Aliesha Walz.

Seen at the gala: SVC president Brother Norman Hipps, theatre director Greggory Brandt, Richard and Joanna Stillwagon, Tony and Renata Marino, George and Linda Austin, Angelo and Pam DeMezza, Bill and Phil Dymond, Karl and Carmen Eisaman, John Noble and Beth Alwine, Ed and Kathy Sabota, Doug and Karen Weimer, John and Malinda Sherid, John and Gretchen Kline, Judith Kovach, Jim and Kathy Bendel, Sherri Dunlap, Marie Zanotti, Ernie and Ruthann Sistek, Bill and Rosemarie McGarrity, Chuck and Anita Manoli, Josie Funari, Steve and Becky Kittey, Jack and MaryAnn Cherubini, Jim and Maureen Laffey, Luke Latimer, Sharon Nies, Dr. Carey and Suzanne McMonagle,George Shaner and Michael Philopena, Joe and Bernie Biss, Sheila Antonacci, Scott and Kim Avolio and Jerry and Nancy Davis.
