Jennette McCurdy is a huge fan of Cirque Du Soleil as many of her fans know. She enjoys it so much that she wanted to share the experience as well. She officially sent an open invitation to anyone who could make it to the Los Angeles area to come to the Cirque Du Soleil: Iris show on September 22nd, 2012.
Though there was no official schedule planned outside the main event, McCurdian.com prepared a pre-party event to gather all the fans prior to the show and await further instructions from Jennette. Many of the ones who attended were dressed in Iris inspired attire, including Jennette herself, who was portraying the character Scarlett from Cirque Du Soleil. Below is a comparison of Jennette and Scarlett:

Tea time with Jennette
A few hours before the show, Jennette sent out a message to have her fans join her for some tea and tasty treats (as previously tweeted). She arrived promptly at 6:30PM PST with a lady friend to enjoy various teas and pastries. Jennette was given gifts, signed autographs, graciously took photos with fans, sang with fans to Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”, and even did a shoutout video to Ysabelle:
