The Public Theatre recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary of bringing professional theatre to Lewiston/Auburn with a joyous "Curtain Call Ball", held on June 4th at the Bates Mill Centre Court, co-sponsored by Androscoggin Bank and Platz Associates.

Over one hundred guests joined the Board of Directors and Staff of The Public Theatre for this elegant and successful event. The evening included celebrity host, Susan Poulin, as the popular Maine character Ida LeClair, spreading her own brand of humor as she greeted each guest on the "Plaid Carpet".

Guests danced the night away to the music of the Tony Boffa Band and enjoyed a fabulous display of foods from Davinci's Eatery.

Over the years, The Public Theatre has built its growth on the foundation of partnerships and this event was an opportunity to expand and thank their partners in the community. Additional businesses supporting this event included: Lee Auto Mall, Raymond Bedette DDS, Patron’s Oxford, Poland Spring Inn, Joel Olstein MD, Austin Associates, Goodwin Motor Group, NeoKraft Signs, and Trafton & Matzen.
