The Lobero Theatre Associates  are a Women’s Auxiliary Group that has been working to support the Lobero Theatre since 1972, taking on projects to continue the Lobero legacy.

The Lobero Theatre Associates’ hard work and dedication have given the Lobero a beautiful courtyard, the Steinway Grand piano that graces the stage, and they actively support Lobero youth programs, bringing thousands of students to the theatre each year.

The lovely Janet McCann is at the helm as the Lobero Theatre Associates president. Since joining the Associates  in 1990, Janet has enjoyed her tenure as both a mini- and an active- member. She’s retaking the reins as president after serving one year in 2003, and will be focusing on engaging new members.

“Being an Associate is a fun and easy way to support the Lobero—which brings the arts to so many children. And, I love these ladies; we are great friends, and I would love to see as many women as possible come together to support the theater.”

The Associates are looking for new members. Learn more here.

The Associates tipped their hats to author Lisa See on March 10 at the Coral Casino. After enjoying a lovely Asian-inspired lunch, featured guest Lisa See captivated the crowd with tales of her trips to rural China and saucy behind-the-pages stories from her novels. She graciously signed books after her speech, and opened her world to many new readers. Once final numbers were in, the luncheon raised  $35,000 to support the Lobero Theatre’s youth programs.
