When performers are invited to attend chi-chi fund raisers they normally have to sing for their supper. 

But at last night’s Queens Theatre’s 25th annual Gala, members of Titan Theatre Co., the venue’s resident acting troupe, got to mingle with the big shots. 

Politicians, community leaders and theater aficionados turned out to help honor Euripides Pelekanos, co-founder and CEO of Bareburger. Pelekanos, who grew up in Astoria and opened his first restaurant there in 2009, expects to open the chain’s 35th outlet by the end of this year. 

While Titan had the night off, Broadway actors Douglas Lyons, from “The Book of Mormon” and “Beautiful,” along with Amber Iman, from “Soul Doctor,” performed original works written by Douglas Lyons and Ethan Pakchar.
