Champion for Children Circle Theatre
Built in 1923, the Circle Theatre is located on the circle in historic downtown Sebring. In April 2011, the Champion for Children Foundation purchased the Circle Theatre as a new initiative to actively support local children’s art programs and enhance joy through family-friendly productions.
After three years of renovations, the Circle Theatre is now open and used for various art-related activities, classes and programs for children.
The Circle Theatre can be made available for events where consumers are looking for a beautiful and elegant place to hold their special gatherings. For more information on renting this facility, please contact the General Manager #863-382-1029 or email@example.com.
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 WW2.
Since that time, the theatre fell upon hard times and was abandoned. Walls that once rung with laughter and music now echoed with silence. The Champion for Children Foundation, determined to help children and families in the local community, saw great potential within those walls. In 2011, the Foundation began working tirelessly on this project to restore it for future generations.
Now that the doors have re-opened, the Circle Theatre is used for a wide variety of functions such as after school programs, children musicals, weddings, receptions, corporate events, special occasions, educational seminars, and much more. The Champion for Children Foundation’s hope is to enrich the lives of many families in Highlands County through this nationally registered historic landmark.
