We are creative, collaborative, and cool under pressure. We are here to exceed the expectations of you and your guests, handling everything with our personal touch, right down to the tiniest detail.
We are here to set the stage, so you can take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the party.
WHO WE ARE...
Opening Night Affair was formed by Husband and Wife team Moira and Chris Conrad, after individual careers in theatre which span over 20 years. In fact, we met on a musical, and married after working several more shows together.
We have toured across the United States, Canada, and Taiwan, and have spent 8 years on Broadway working on some of the most successful shows with some of the most recognizable names in the business. Now, we are bringing our unique talents and theatrical experience into the world of event planning.
When a production is getting ready to open onstage, there is a “tech” process. This process can be grueling, amazing, creative, fun, and ultimately fulfilling. At the end of the tech process, the curtain goes up for the first time and the audience gets to experience and appreciate the joy, the magic, and the excitement of that theatrical occasion.
We want to guide you through your tech process, and bring that Opening NIght feeling to your next event. We want to bring the curtain up on your special production so all your guests can enjoy the unique experience that we have created together.
You should be the star of your own party, so let us set the stage. We want to make your event Red Carpet Ready.

Because your Wedding is unlike any other day in your life, we offer options specific to our Wedding Planning Services.
* Consultation Only (1-2 hours): Sometimes you may only need someone outside the loop to bounce ideas off of and/or get you started. This option is perfect for the Bride who wants to do it herself, but may need a little push in the right direction.
* Plan and Preparation: For the Bride who needs help with the planning, but who has the Big Day covered. This option works with you to plan the entire event up to your Wedding Day, but we will not be with you when you walk down the aisle.
* Day Of Event: This option is perfect for the Bride who knows what she wants and knows how to make it happen. However, even the most organized of Brides needs a helping hand so she can relax and enjoy her Big Day. This option has us at your Event, doing all those little things that need done, ie: handing out boutonnieres and bouquets, making certain your Grandma is front and center, ensuring the photographer is capturing all the right moments, and keeping your guests merry while you and your new Husband are busy. There are a million things for us to take care of on this day, and only one thing you need to do, which is Enjoy!
* Complete Package, Concept to Curtain: This option is the one for the Bride who wants to sit back, relax, and enjoy the planning right through to the final goodbyes after the reception is over. We will be with you from the first meeting to the last dance.
