Schedule of Events

Speakeasy - Jan 23 - Tickets Available for $35

Enjoy a fun night of drinking, gambling and an interactive show time experience at the vintage speakeasy set in an original 1920s theater. Enjoy the sights and sounds as they transport you back to the freewheeling ways of the 1920s. In an era like no other, the "Roarin' '20s" were defined by the parties, the gambling and the alcohol made more tempting by the impropriety of it all. Travel back to a night that was once called the golden era by the very likes of Hemmingway, Fitzgerald and Picasso in the prime of life. Our Speakeasy will transport you back to the 1920s to enjoy the nightlife like it was meant to be lived.

Diamond Jubilee - Feb 9 - Tickets Not Yet Available, Price to be $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. For the more curious and adventurous, there will be tours backstage and in dressing rooms to show the full specter that is The Playhouse theatre. The theme of the evening is "Decades," focusing back on the six memorable decades of The Playhouse's history. Featured will be 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.
