Featuring eye-popping costumes, wonderful media throughout the show, tap dancing and delightful songs that take us on a nostalgic journey through the Golden Age of entertainment.

Location: Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center

Tickets: $100 minimum donation requested

“I began the Libby Dodson’s Live at Lynn Theatre Series in 2004 with attractions in the Amarnick-Goldstein Concert Hall, and In 2010, we celebrated the opening of the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center, which gave us space on the Lynn University campus for even more exciting productions—but we couldn’t have done any of it without the Theatre Arts Guild,” says McArt. 

“Many people ask what the Theatre Arts Guild is, why they should join and why they should invite friends, she adds.  “The Guild is the fundraising arm of my theater arts program for Live at Lynn. When entertainment fans join the Guild, their donation helps us bring top-quality programming to the community. It also helps us to raise scholarship dollars, and buy equipment for and maintain the Wold Performing Arts Center.” 

“In addition, Guild membership allows us to create exciting programs like the upcoming staged concert version of Jerry Herman’s Milk and Honey, featuring professional singers backed by the Lynn Philharmonia Orchestra. Best of all, Guild members get the best seats in the house, long before the general public is invited to buy them,” says McArt. “I’m so proud of what we’re doing at Lynn University and I hope our generous supporters will join us at this Sunday’s Ice Cream Social so I can tell them in person just how much they are appreciated.”
