One of the most successful go-getters of all time once said, “One week you may be an actor, and the next week you had to be nimble enough to be a TV host. And the week after that, you might have to do some stand-up or be in an improv company or write and sing a song somewhere.” From television shows to comedy stages, you may remember this ubiquitous individual from his role in ABC’s Growing Pains, Thicke of the Night, or his various musical compositions and publications. But there is no better way to remember the life of Alan Thicke than by joining The Lobero Theatre during A Hats Off Evening, In Honor of Alan Thicke.
What better way to celebrate a master of the stage, than by joining on the stage of the Lobero on March 15, from 5:30- 7 p.m., to raise a glass in tribute of Thicke’s talents and contribution to television and the community.
Glorifying one of America’s all-purpose Canadian entertainers and loving fathers for his distinctive charm and humor, The Lobero Theatre will not host its Annual Hats Off Luncheon, but instead, will be accepting donations towards the “Raise the Roof” campaign. Donations of $200 or more will be gifted with admission to the cocktail reception on the stage of Santa Barbara’s oldest, still-performing theaters!
As Thicke was an applauded emcee of the Lobero Theatre’s Annual Hats Off Luncheons for years, hosting luncheons for remarkable individuals such as Bea Arthur, his remembrance will not be celebrated at the Four Seasons Biltmore as usual; but instead, will be honored by receiving contributions towards the Lobero’s necessary repairs.
The Lobero Theatre Associates, co-chaired by Danielle McCaffery and Rhea Hayes, have contributed over $1 million over the past 40 years to ensure that the Lobero remains a vital and enduring home for the arts in Santa Barbara. By purchasing a ticket, or becoming a sponsor of this year’s Gala, attendees will help the Associates once again reach their fundraising goal in support of preserving the Lobero Theatre.
