Mini Golf in PlayhouseSquare's Palace Theatre

… May’s a busy month at PlayhouseSquare with Partners’ Mini Golf Par-Tee and the week-long International Children’s Festival …

Although the next PlayhouseSquare Partners’ Jump Back Ball is almost a year away, the young professionals group is busy hosting a number of other great, upcoming events for Cleveland.  While some of these are theater-related, our committees like Social and Membership work hard to create a variety of events that appeal to different audiences.

One of these events, in particular, promises to be a unique and fun night out: the 2nd annual PlayhouseSquare Partners’ Mini Golf Par-Tee.

That’s right — mini golf.  And not just mini golf, but mini golf set up throughout the beautiful Palace Theatre.

I’d heard stories of last year’s mini golf night since I joined Partners so I’m really happy to share that this event (like many of Partners’ events) is open to the public.

On Tuesday, May 17th, join me from 5:30 – 8 pm in playing 9 holes of mini golf set up throughout the historic Palace lobby. Once the flagship of B.F. Keith’s vaudeville chain, today the Palace hosts shows, comedians (like Jon Stewart on Saturday night), and the Cinema at the Square classic film series in the summer.

While putt-ing yourself around the lobby, you’ll have the chance to win prizes at each hole. Additionally, there will be raffle prizes including gift certificates to a number of area restaurants (foodies rejoice!).

If digital golf is more your thing, Wii Golf will be projected on a big screen. Current Partners will also be excited to know that the New Partner of the Year and Partner of the Year awards will be announced that night.

Because playing golf (even mini golf) can work up an appetite, your ticket gets you complimentary beer courtesy of Labatt and Sammy’s “Clubhouse” catering.

Tickets are $30, but if you’re a Partner (or become a Partner), there is the discounted rate of $20. Hole sponsorships are also available at $50 and $100. Hole sponsors will be entered into a special drawing for prizes including a Sony Blu-Ray player.

Tickets and hole sponsorships can be purchased by calling Partners coordinator Molly Franz at 216-348-5265 or emailing franzm@playhousesquare.org.

Since this will be my first time attending the Mini Golf Par-Tee, I asked Kevin Ropenus and Joni Todd who co-chair the Social Committee to share a bit on what we can expect:

The Par-Tee is PlayhouseSquare Partners’ marquee spring event that culminates a year filled with social gatherings. It allows partygoers an opportunity to network socially with old friends and new acquaintances while enjoying a fun filled evening of music, food, drinks, raffle prizes and of course miniature golf.”

And when you’re at the Par-Tee, stop by the Membership Table where I’ll be hanging out for part of the evening to say hi and learn more about the Partners young professionals group. Donor levels start at $50 per person/$75 a couple and get you lots of benefits.

In addition to the Mini Golf Par-Tee and a full line-up of shows in May, PlayhouseSquare will host the 2nd Annual International Children’s Festival.  From May 2nd – 7th, the week-long festival presented by Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital will feature live performances from around the world, a world stage featuring local artists, and interactive activities to give schools, families, and children an enriching and unique live theater experience.

“Celebrating the world we share” is the theme for this year’s event and perfectly reflects what I believe should be at the core of every major theatre organization — sharing the arts with children and getting them engaged in the community at an early age.  Subsequently, I’m happy that a number of the Festival activities, such as the 14th Street World Stage, Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital Wellness Walk, “OM” Comes Home and Art Walk, will be free of charge.

Additionally, on Saturday, May 7, PlayhouseSquare Partners will be assisting with the free children’s workshops thanks to the hard work of the Partners Education Committee. These fun take-home activities will take place in the Idea Center Miller Classrooms from 11 am- 5pm.

After the success of the inaugural International Children’s Festival which saw more than 12,000 students and families participate in 2010, I’m looking forward to volunteering and seeing the event continue to grow this year.
