Duncan Theatre, Lake Worth Florida
The Duncan Theater, located on the Lake Worth campus of Palm Beach State College, has been a cultural touchstone and arts anchor of the community since its inception in 1986, six years before the Kravis Center raised its first curtain. The theater is named for a former literature instructor at the college, Watson B. Duncan III, who headed the English Department and was a mentor to Burt Reynolds, one of his students.
Presenting more than 300 shows a year, the theater comprises two venues: the 122-seat Stage West, which often screens films, and the larger theater, the 700-seat Continental-style seating venue. Both theatres have undergone renovations, including new seats, new paint and floors, and new grand curtains. Since the early days, the theater functioned as an oasis of high-quality, cutting-edge, modern dance, contemporary music and chamber opera, all offered at affordable prices.
