It’s Showtime! Welk Resort Theatre Lobby Dazzles After Renovation
All the world’s a stage, and we’re happy to bring you one of the best! Exciting things have been happening over at Welk Resort Theatre at our San Diego resort. We’ve been busy at work making some fresh renovations to our beloved theatre lobby to help make your visits even more magical. Read on for some before and after photos, treasured memories, and what’s coming up next!
Blast From the Past
The great legacy of our Welk Resort Theatre began with our dedication festivities in November of 1980. During this event, we unveiled “The Lawrence Welk Story,” a warm and loving film tribute to our favorite music man. Eight months later, in 1981, our first live theatre performance provided guests with some fabulous entertainment with Broadway’s “Barefoot in the Park,” starring Dorothy Lamour.
Since then, a number of famous faces (as well as Tony- and Emmy-winning actors) have graced our stage, including Nanette Fabray, June Lockhart, Dorothy Lamour, Jerry Lacy, Ellen Bry, Richard Kline, and Jack Klugman.
Lawrence Welk’s legacy is to provide the customer what they want, and so we want to ensure your theatre-going experience is always magical! On your next visit, be sure to enjoy our completely renovated lobby, with a new bar and concession area, comfortable lounge seating and box office reception area, as well as a new tribute to Lawrence Welk’s long-spanning career.
Lawrence Welk Tribute
Since it began in 1980, our theatre has told The Lawrence Welk Story and we’re glad to continue this tradition. With our recent updates, we’ve brought new life and fun to helping guests young and old feel the magic that started with Lawrence Welk.
