WESTPORT — Jonathan Groff, of “Glee,” “Frozen” and “Hamilton” fame, performed for guests and arts supporters at the Westport Country Playhouse's 2017 Gala on Saturday.

The gala featured a cocktail party, dinner and a silent auction. Ann Sheffer was awarded a Playhouse Leadership Award for her work with the playhouse.

The gala benefited the playhouse’s 87th season, which kicks off on Sept. 26 with “Sex with Strangers,” a take on love in the digital age, written by Laura Eason and directed by Katherine M. Carter.
