Florida Theater Covid-19 Schedule: John Lewis: Good Trouble

September 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jacksonville, Fla. (September 10, 2020) – While the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre remains closed due to the ongoing pandemic, the team at the Theatre continue to bring a variety of unique entertainment experiences to the audience at home.

In June, the Florida Theatre held their first-ever virtual event when renowned, GRAMMY-winning blues musician Keb’ Mo’ performed the Keb’ Mo’ Home Show exclusively for the Florida Theatre audience. Also during the summer, Theatreworks, the Florida Theatre program which provides national and international professional touring children’s theatre to school-age children and summer campers, streamed their entire Free Summer Theatre lineup online.

“We miss our audience and supporters as much as they miss the Theatre and our staff,” said Florida Theatre Vice President, Programming Kevin Stone. “These virtual events are our way of continuing to provide some fun and entertainment for the community while we eagerly await the day we can reopen and see everyone again. Each ticket sold helps us to keep moving forward through this uncertain time.”

The Theatre continues their lineup of at-home entertainment with these upcoming virtual events:
