Wilborn Joins The Palladium Theater
St. Petersburg - Paul Wilborn, former manager of Creative Industries
for the city of Tampa , has been named executive director of The
Palladium at St. Petersburg College . I'm very excited to
be joining the Palladium at this point in the theater's history,
Wilborn said. The relationship with St. Petersburg College
allows the theater to build on its original mission and to enhance
the college's educational efforts. An
accomplished pianist and singer, Wilborn has performed at the Palladium
more than once, interpreting the music of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin
and others in an American Songbook program format. Wilborn,
54, is a well-known figure on the Tampa Bay arts scene. Before going
to work for the city of Tampa , he worked as a reporter for the
Tampa Tribune and, later, for the St. Petersburg Times . Wilborn
succeeds Dar Webb, a Palladium board member, who has served as interim
director for the past two years.
The Lyric Theatre Breaks One-Day Record For Initial
Ticket Sales To Members
Stuart - One day after America celebrated its birthday, The Lyric
Theatre in downtown Stuart celebrated the on-sale of its 2007-2008
season to Theatre members. Beginning an hour and a half before the
box office opened, a line of people started to form along Flagler
Avenue, many sitting in chairs they brought from home and others
standing and leaning against nearby buildings. Lyric staff were
readily available to answer questions and offer bottles of cold
water as ticket buyers eagerly anticipated the 10:00am hour. With
the box office opening a second window and phones ringing off the
hook, members patiently waited for their turn to purchase tickets
to their favorite performances. Consistently throughout the morning
and early afternoon hours, over 30 people were waiting in line at
one time. John Loesser, Executive Director of the Lyric, stated
that this was the largest turnout he had ever seen for a member
on-sale and how pleased he was that many people were signing up
to become members today for the very first time. And, even more
exciting is that by the time the box office closed at 5:00pm, members
had purchased a record-breaking 2,000+ tickets - with overall sales
in excess of $102,000 - once again confirming that Lyric Theatre
supporters are looking forward to attending many events in the upcoming
