Reserved seating: $18 adult, $10 child
This wacky musical lampoons the “age-old” situations faced in mid-life – from reading glasses to weekend warrior syndrome. Everyone will relate to Curtain Call Playhouse’s hilarious (and sometimes touching) production, presented with a Saturday Night Live non-sensibility.

Barbra Streisand & Tony Bennett Tribute
Sunday, March 8th, at 2:00 p.m.
Reserved seating: $20 adult, $10 child
South Florida Legends presents a tribute to two of the most talented and beloved entertainers – Streisand and Bennett. Sing along to your favorites – and enjoy a few special duets.

“Island Song”

This off-beat musical dramedy follows the lives of five 20- and 30-somethings as they navigate the ups and downs of New York City – both on their own and, sometimes unknowingly, with each other. Driven by an emotional pop-rock score, “Island Song” illustrates the random yet pivotal ways that New Yorkers connect. Presented by our company-in-residence, Measure for Measure Theatre.

Village Art Plaza Kickoff!Celebrate Original Sunrise
at the Village Art Plaza Kickoff

Celebrate Original Sunrise and share your vision for the future Village Art Plaza on Saturday, February 29th, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Come shine with us at this free, family-friendly event next to the Village Multipurpose Center (2240 NW 68th Avenue) and explore the potential of the City’s newest public space.

To get your creativity flowing, we’ll have children’s activities, live art and music, and light refreshments. We’ll also showcase the history of Sunrise’s original neighborhoods, which extend along the Sunset Strip corridor.

The new Village Art Plaza – located in the heart of Original Sunrise – will connect City Park and the Village Civic Center. Proposed uses for this flexible open space include farmers markets and cultural events. The Plaza will be visually defined by art installations and a unique surface, and will feature removable bollards to facilitate street closures and encourage pedestrian traffic.

To find out more about the Village Art Plaza Kickoff, call the City of Sunrise Leisure Services Department: (954) 747-4600.
