Behind the Curtain: The Sunrise Centennial

Behind The Curtain Sunrise Tour Website & Linkedin

Did you hear the news? The Sunrise Theatre recently rang in its centennial anniversary with a speakeasy celebration. The fundraising event was a roaring good time – what a way to celebrate 100 years of bringing the best in live entertainment to downtown Fort Pierce!

On August 1, 1923, R.N. Pop Koblegard opened the doors of this beautiful 1,200-seat venue, which has been a testament to his vision as Fort Pierce, at the time, was a town of just 2,000 people. Today, the theatre serves over 85,000 patrons and guests annually through its shows, events, and programs on the Treasure Coast.

Join the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association for our November Membership Event as we take an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of this historic site – and get a glimpse into the making of the remarkable 100-year celebration event, led by the visionaries who crafted every magical moment!

Arrive early for refreshments and a chance to network. The tour will begin at 9 a.m.

Thank you to our event sponsors, iThink Financial (Hutchinson Island)!
