The Roast of Pat Halloran will take place in the Peabody Hotel’s Grand Ballroom and will include a sit-down dinner. Dr. Scott Morris will act as the Master of Ceremonies for the event, and six "Roasters" will take turns honoring Halloran’s illustrious career with humorous stories, sarcastic reflections, and witty character descriptions.

Roasters include:


The evening’s entertainment will also include a special performance by local students, all of whom have participated or are currently taking part in the Orpheum’s Education programming. Over 600 guests are expected to attend.

Proceeds from this special night of anecdotes will benefit Halloran’s last and largest project: the Halloran Centre for Performing Arts & Education. Click here to purchase single tickets.
