Take a journey through the History of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Remember what it was like before you traded in you “Raybans” for “Readers”. Whether you’re a C.E.O. or a stay at home MOM, we all had the same posters on our walls and worshiped the same Rock Gods before we “Landed the Job”, “Bought the House” and “Life got in the way”.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Letter is 70 years of Rock n Roll packed into 105 minutes. Experience the culture from its inception with period correct images and video accompanying each decade of the music that changed our culture, society and the world. Part concert, part history lesson, part comedy, and part conversation, “Love Letter” is a message to you from your younger self, telling you “it’s alright, everything is alright”. Told through the eyes of a musician who was not only there for a lot of it, but also a fan too … just like you. And by the way, in case you were wondering, there will be no Elvis costumes harmed in this show, these performances are really more about the fans and how we turned out. Come experience the artistic styling of singer/songwriter, Robert Garcia.
When the Circle Theatre first opened its doors to the public in 1923, it was considered the “coolest place in town.” Early settlers of Sebring flocked to the Theatre to get away from the oppressive heat and mosquitoes, especially during the summer months. Silent movies were shown in the 1920’s, and FDR had fireside chats to the audience in the 1940’s during WWII. Since that time, the theatre fell upon hard times and was abandoned. Walls that once rung with laughter and music echoed with silence. The Champion for Children Foundation, determined to serve children and families in the local community, saw great potential within those walls. In 2011, the Foundation began working tirelessly on the project to restore it for future generations. After three years of renovations, the Circle Theatre opened to offer various art-related activities and programs for children as well as serving as an elegant venue rental for the community. In 2017, the Circle Theatre is restructuring to focus on bringing beneficial prevention programs and enhanced services to local families. Mission-focused programs will provide community trainings, support groups, educational events, and family resources. Also be on the lookout for local artist series, community concerts, and children’s theatrical performances. Learn More
