At 10 p.m., “Rockin' New Year's Eve” starts, featuring scenes from musicals staged this past year. As midnight draws near, the party moves up to the Cameo roof and out onto the sidewalk, where the downtown fireworks display will be visible. A cash bar will be taking and serving orders throughout the evening. Tickets cost $25 for the entire evening and $15 for “New Year's Rockin' Eve” alone.
