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. Where once the great walls rung with laughter and music, now echoed with silence. The Champion for Children Foundation, a non-profit, determined to help children and families in the local community, saw great potential within those walls. They began working tirelessly on this project to restore it for future generations. Now that the doors have re-opened, this venue is used for a wide variety of functions, e.g., after school program, children musicals, weddings, receptions, corporate events, special occasions, educational seminars & children’s programs. Our hope is to enrich the lives of many families in Highlands County.  We believe you and the public at large will absolutely love the finished restoration of this nationally registered historic landmark. 2013 Circle Theatre Grand Opening
