The Lake Worth Playhouse celebrated its 60th Anniversary with a bang. Between two events, the Lake Worth Playhouse raised more than $21,000. The Playhouse was thrilled to welcome back Mr. Burt Reynolds who attended the Diamond Jubilee Gala Dinner as Guest of Honor and accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Mr. Reynolds was just as witty as ever for his first public event since his illness. From quibs about Clint Eastwood and Riveria Beach to heartfelt advice to student performers. He always had a quick line and a smile for each guest, truly connecting with donors and volunteers both.
The Diamond Jubilee SOLD OUT at 76 attendees for an intimate Stage Dinner Gala featuring a Silent Auction, Dining, Dancing and Special Musical Performances.
The Speakeasy SOLD OUT at 200 attendees for a fun and rowdy night of 1920's gambling, drinking, dining and murder-mystery entertainment.
"I was thrilled that Mr. Reynolds would join us for such an amazing celebration. The Lake Worth Playhouse has been a mainstay in Palm Beach County arts where many have taken advantage and learned from all we offer. This season is truly a special celebration for us and we thank all those who could join us in honoring that." - Jodie Dixon Mears, Artistic Director
