Journey of HLT

   

Nestled in the pages of a 1974 newspaper, one would have found an ad reading, “Meet for drama club”. That ad let to a group of approximately 30 people, many of whom were teachers, performing anywhere they had access to a stage. Their love of theatre kept this fluid group together for years to come.

In the 1980s, they went to the city of Sebring and asked to use a building that was to soon be demolished. The city agreed to lease them the builing for the grand total of one dollar a month. This building would come to be known as Highlands Little Theatre.

As the years rolled on, the professionalism and quality of their performances grew as did the building itself. They have since expanded, adding additional space to house a second stage. The theatre is home to countless volunteers who have become close like family. Their dedication to the craft is evident in each play and an inspiration to many.

With the nearing of 2020, it became very clear there is no lack of talent in Highlands County and there is nothing “little” about Highlands Little Theatre. With this revelation, those involved took action as they have so many times before, always moving forward always pushing for greatness. With those efforts, they created a d.b.a., a name change of sorts. Highlands Little Theatre is now Highlands Lakeside Theatre.

Today, nestled on the shore of Lake Jackson close to downtown Sebring, one will find Highlands Lakeside Theatre. A captivating vessle transporting audience members to another time and place each time they descend into those plush red seats. Those who attend can be assured they will be swept away by the powerful performances. While we all can be thankful for the newspaper ad which led to this staple in our community that brings us art, culture, and joy.
