The Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood has put together an impressive lineup for its livestream gala, “Our Home, Your Home,” scheduled for March 13 at 7:30 p.m. Performers will include John Fogerty, Dionne Warwick, Darlene Love, Jack Antonoff, Wynton Marsalis, Paul Anka and Tony-winning actress Ali Stroker, with Ray Chew serving as musical director.
The livestream will be free but donations will be sought, to benefit BergenPAC’s Performing Arts School, pandemic relief and theater renovations.
Warwock will perform with a choir of students from BergenPAC’s Performing Arts School. Other participants will include the cast of Broadway’s “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations,” Amelia Gold, Kelli Rabke and Alexander Diaz, and Jay Leno and classical musician Itzhak Perlman will tape video messages.
During the pandemic, the theater has organized drive-in and virtual concerts, and educational online activities, but its doors are still closed indefinitely. The theater will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2026, though it has been known as BergenPAC only since 2003.
