LEGENDS RADIO PRESENTS
"AN EVENING WITH BURT REYNOLDS"

EISSEY CAMPUS THEATRE, JUNE 1, 2017

AN EVENING WITH BURT REYNOLDSJUPITER, Fla.– Tickets are now on sale for the ONE NIGHT ONLY presentation of An Evening with Burt Reynolds sponsored by Legends Radio 100.3 FM/Dick Robinson Entertainment, LLC. This intimate opportunity to share a few hours with Jupiter's favorite son and America's favorite Bandit will be presented on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at the Eissey Campus Theatre.

Hollywood Legend Burt Reynolds will answer questions from the audience, speak about his career, and show film clips from some of his 200+ movies. He will also share personal insights and a few "dare to tell" escapades known only to his closest friends. Reynolds, named the top box office draw for five consecutive years by The National Association of Theatre Owners, was an Oscar nominee, a two-time Golden Globe winner, and the recipient of the People's Choice Award for six straight years.

A long time star of stage and screen, Reynolds appeared in many memorable films including Hooper, Boogie Nights, Deliverance, Longest Yard, and Cannonball Run. He was a popular guest host on The Tonight Show and starred in the fondly remembered television series Evening Shade. Although Reynolds name and face have graced many worthy movies, he will forever be remembered as the charming, devil-may-care Bo "Bandit" Darville in the 1977 pop culture hit Smokey and the Bandit.

Burt Reynolds has played an important part in Palm Beach County's modern history and the impact he has had on our community is a vital part of that history. An Evening with Burt Reynolds will benefit The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre, a non-profit dedicated to involving the community in all aspects of the arts and preserving Reynolds' legacy for generations to come. The Institute offers classes in acting, improvisation, stage and screen writing and film-making as well as lectures by experts in the film industry.

The Eissey Theatre lobby doors open at 5:30pm. Early arriving ticket holders are invited to view pre-event music and sponsor displays. The show begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at http://legendsradio.com/burt/ and starting May 1st at the Eissey Campus Theatre Box Office 561-207-5900.

The Eissey Theatre is located at: 1101 Campus Drive, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410

BURT REYNOLDS INSTITUTE ACTORS NEEDED FOR STAGED READINGS

Creative Writing for the Author in All of Us students have been enjoying the talents of the Burt Reynolds Institute actors during the twice-a-month staged readings. Scripts under development are presented in staged reading format so that writers can hear how their words will sound when delivered on film. This allows for questions and feedback from the actors which benefit the writers during the editing process. Both actors and writers have been enjoying their time together and have gained a new respect for the effort it takes to bring a script from conception to completion. Actors wishing to participate in these readings should contact Donna at info@burtreynoldsinstitute.org or by calling 561-743-9955.
