Circle Theatre History
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 WWII.
Since that time, the theatre fell upon hard times and was abandoned. Walls that once rung with laughter and music echoed with silence. The Champion for Children Foundation, determined to serve children and families in the local community, saw great potential within those walls. In 2011, the Foundation began working tirelessly on the project to restore it for future generations. After three years of renovations, the Circle Theatre opened to offer various art-related activities and programs for children as well as serving as an elegant venue rental for the community.
In 2017, the Circle Theatre restructured to focus on bringing beneficial prevention programs and enhanced services to local families. Mission-focused programs provide community trainings, support groups, educational events, and family resources. Also be on the lookout for local artist series, community concerts, and children’s theatrical performances.
