Via press release:

September 26th 2012 (Lake Worth) – On Tuesday, October 2nd at 6pm at the Lake Worth Commission meeting, Pam Triolo, the Mayor of the City of Lake Worth, will proclaim October 5th as Lake Worth Playhouse Day. This is a tremendous honor for the Playhouse to have its own day to kick off the 60th season.

Accepting the proclamation on behalf of the Playhouse is Board President Michael McKeich with Anna (Katie Thomas) and the King (Brian Wohlust) appearing in character from the first show of the season, The King and I.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the City of Lake Worth in this special way.  The Playhouse has always shared a close relationship with our city and we are thrilled to be remembered on this day.”
– Jodie Dixon Mears, Artistic Director
The 60th season will feature the addition of two signature anniversary events:

The Speakeasy – Jan 23 – $35
A fun night of drinking, appetizers, cabaret singers, gambling and an interactive murder-mystery show time experience at the vintage speakeasy set in an original 1920s theater.

Diamond Jubilee – Feb 9 – $150
The Playhouse welcomes donors with an elegant, intimate evening of cocktails, dining, dancing and silent auction on the stage of the Lake Worth Playhouse’s historic theatre.  The theme of “Decades,” focuses back on the six memorable decades of the Playhouse’s history, featuring talented Playhouse volunteer performers showcasing classic songs from popular musicals performed throughout the Playhouse’s vast history of more than 340 main stage shows.  The apogee of the evening will turn to a Playhouse success story – the return of Mr. Burt Reynolds to the Playhouse stage where he performed more than fifty years ago.

Founding in 1953, the Lake Worth Playhouse is an iconic South Florida community theatre, and a member of the South Florida Theatre League.
