Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts: “A Night to Remember”
May 2, 2021
The First Academy Fine Arts department will present “A Night to Remember” on Thursday, May 6th at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. After months of sheltering in place due to the pandemic, the Frontyard Festival™ presented by AdventHealth will provide patrons of the arts an opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy a lively program featuring student performers from award-winning middle and upper school band, choir, and theater programs. Not only did COVID-19 limit our places to gather last year, but the deadly disease also seriously impacted the arts and entertainment industry, including much-anticipated performances by younger performers and their stage crews.
“We are extremely excited to be a sponsor of A Night to Remember,” said Dr. Michael Steppie, the President and Medical Director of Associates in Dermatology and a clinical professor of Dermatology at Florida State University College of Medicine. “Our Central Florida community is well known for supporting the arts & entertainment and it was sad last year to the see the doors closed and lights off when passing by the Dr. Phillips Center.” This unique performance is part of the Center’s one-of-a-kind, live outdoor entertainment experience that includes food and drinks delivered directly to your group’s assigned box from the facility’s on-site restaurants.
The program features student performers from middle and upper schools and showcases-style selections from movies and musicals, such as James Bond, La La Land, Annie, and Hello Dolly; just to name a few. In addition, local 4th and 5th grade ensembles will perform snippets from their current reviews. So, don’t miss out on this evening of student performances with fun-filled entertainment for everyone in your group. To enjoy a much-needed evening of entertainment, act now and you can pick you own socially distant box with seating up to five people to dine and watch the show. You can always expect a safe and amazing experience when you visit the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center.
The new outdoor venue is directly in front of the main center for the performing arts at 445 S. Magnolia Avenue in downtown Orlando. Entry gates for “A Night to Remember” are located on Orange Avenue at Seneff Arts Plaza. You also have secure parking options ranging from our Valet Parking (445 South Magnolia Ave), Seaside Plaza Garage (77 East Jackson St), and City Commons Garage (see 460 Boone Ave). Since opening the performing arts center seven years ago, the Dr. Phillips Center has been named one of Travel + Leisure magazine’s “25 New Tourist Attractions Worth Adding to Your Bucket List” and one of Southern Living magazine’s “50 Best Places in the South Now.” The Center is committed to doing everything possible to reignite the entire Central Florida community of performers and patrons of the arts.
