Sign Crew Places New Signage

Crew Places New Signage

AVON PARK, Fla.–Nov. 18, 2015–A sign crew recently put the finishing touches on new signage for South Florida State College’s theatre. Removal of previous signage started on Nov. 2. The crew has since hoisted a 10-foot-wide circular sign emblazoned with a cursive-style “W” atop the building’s west-facing façade and added new lettering next to the sign.

On Oct. 1, South Florida State College announced a new name for its performing arts venue. Formerly known as the SFSC Theatre for the Performing Arts, it took on a new name to recognize local businessman, Alan Jay Wildstein, for a major gift to SFSC’s $10 million capital campaign, the Partnership Project. Now known as the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts at SFSC, the 1,460-seat theater complex needed new signs to match its new name. “The work is complete, and we’re ready for Jay Leno,” said Cindy Garren, director, SFSC Cultural Programs.

To celebrate and honor the donor, the theater will present an inaugural performance—acclaimed television late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, and pioneering car builder and mechanic, Jay Leno. The performance will be held Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.  Donny Most, best known as Ralph Malph from the television program “Happy Days,” opens the show. Most is currently touring the country with his jazz sextet performing standards from the Great American Songbook.

Tickets for the performance start at $55 and are available online at or by visiting the SFSC Box Office in front of the theatre. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
