As one of the oldest performing arts organization in Palm Beach County, The Lake Worth Playhouse has announced a summer full of programming including HAIRSPRAY, FAME JR., WIZARD OF OZ, and more. See the full lineup below.
May 12, 10pm. Spend an evening learning what it's like to be a paranormal investigator and finding out more about ghosts and other phenomena with the Paranormal Crossroads Investigations (PCI) team.
The night starts with a meet and greet where we introduce ourselves and briefly talk with our guests about the field and the science of paranormal investigations. PCI will then give participants a quick lesson on how to use our handheld equipment. We then take assigned groups to different sections of the facility where paranormal activity has been suspected, providing strict instructions on what areas are off limits. We then leave the groups to conduct their own investigations while we monitor them via video cameras set up in each room. We periodically switch groups to different areas, while taking breaks. At the end of the night, the entire group will reconvene and talk about the observations and experiences our guests had that evening.
VIP Tickets include: Investigate with a senior investigation team member, digital photo with director of PCI, invitation to evidence review session, special VIP hours, special equipment monitoring.
Gratitude, The Show
May 25-26, 2pm. The Gratitude Festival is a "Live Life to the Fullest" celebration of love, life and gratitude. Classified as an Edutainment "show" - it is a 4 hour mix of education and entertainment. It is an afternoon of love, laughter and fun leaving the participants in a state of Joy and Gratitude. In a high energy and entertaining atmosphere we create curve balls, love bombs, and impactful experiences that will light up the audience and have them realize that anything is possible. Our goal is to have the participants find new connections between their head and their heart as they walk away in a state of Gratitude.
