The South Florida Theatre League's
Summer Promotion
Encourages Patrons to Taste Something New!

The South Florida Theatre League announced the creation of A Taste of Summer Theatre – an exciting new promotion which will run this summer through August 31, as a part of the WLRN Summer Theatre Fest. A Taste of Summer Theatre has been created to encourage patrons to attend theatres they might not otherwise patronize, and reward those who attend multiple Theatre League theatres over the course of the summer.

Patrons who attend three Theatre League member theatre performances will be eligible to receive a $20 gift certificate to The Melting Pot, the popular restaurant that offers a truly unique dining experience created by the art of fondue.

In order to be eligible for their certificates, patrons must send their contact information and ticket stubs for each of the three performances they attended to the South Florida Theatre League at PO Box 630656, Miami, FL 33163. Patrons will receive their gift certificate for participating Melting Pot locations by mail.

The Theatre League of South Florida is an alliance of theatrical organizations and professionals dedicated to nurturing, promoting, and advocating for the growth and prestige of the South Florida theatre industry, and represents over forty theatres in South Florida, ranging from the Keys north to Jupiter.

"We're really excited the Melting Pot has sponsored A Taste of Summer Theatre - we feel it's an excellent way to encourage patrons to try something new – both in their theatrical and fondue choices,"says Andie Arthur, executive director of the South Florida Theatre League.

A Taste of Summer Theatre is one of the many theatrical programs offered during WLRN'S Summer Theatre Fest, the new version of the South Florida Theatre Festival, designed to foster audience development for the South Florida Theatre Community.

Other upcoming programming includes the Summer Fest Giveaway – a ticket lottery for summer productions similar to Free Night of Theater, allowing patrons to try a theatre they may have never been to before; and City Theatre's In their Own Words: Readings by Leslie Ayvazian and Christopher Durang, wherein the two award winning playwrights will read from their own scripts at the EPIC hotel in downtown Miami on Saturday, June 16th at 6:00 pm. Half the proceeds from In Their Own Words will be donated to the South Florida Theatre League.
