Downton Abbey in Wichita
Join the Wichita Grand Opera at Downton Abbey on September 19, 2020, for our annual Opera Ball. Be the guest of our Chairman of the Board, Grant (Crawley) Bauserman, and all of the Crawley staff as we celebrate the grand kick-off of the Wichita social season. The Opera Ball is our festive annual fund-raising endeavor that supports our upcoming season of performances. This year’s Opera Ball will take place at the Wichita Marriott, 9100 E. Corporate Hills Drive (it’s not quite the Abbey—but, we promise it will be an evening you won’t forget).
