The South Florida Theatre League is building a bed! Yes, a bed. Its cover will be a map listing all South Florida theatres; its bed skirt will contain the logos of the League’s member theatres; its head board will read Get in Bed with the Arts; and its footboard will feature the South Florida Theatre League logo and website address.

The goal of the League’s Get in Bed with the Arts campaign, which will run in conjunction with WLRN’s Summer Theatre Fest program, is to raise awareness of the theatrical arts in the South Florida community.
The bed will make its debut at the 37th annual Carbonell Awards ceremony on April 1st at the Broward Center for the Arts, and will lead the way to the South Florida Theatre League sponsored after party/celebration; its final appearance will be as a participant in the annual Coconut Grove Bed Race on Labor Day weekend.
The bed will ‘visit’ League member theatres during Theatre Fest (June 1st through August 31st) on Thursday evenings (performance days only). Theatre patrons will be invited to participate in the fun – doing interviews, or having their photos taken on or next to the bed. The interviews and photos will be posted on the South Florida Theatre League’s website (www.southfloridatheatre.com/).
Many of the League’s member theatres are already on board (or in bed!) with the project. Some of the participating theatres are:
Actors Playhouse –
Adrienne Arsht Center – Slava’s Snowshow (July 31 – August 25)
Broadway Musical Theatre – Shrek the Musical (June 1 – 9)

The Lake Worth Playhouse – In the Heights (July 11-28)
