In 2019,
Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts
turns 30 years old!
Can you believe it?

In that time, Lovewell has partnered with students, local organizations and schools to write and produce over 200 musicals and concerts. Yes, that’s over 200 musicals written by the students of Lovewell. More than 100 of those were written in Florida, 50 of those shows were written across Sweden. More than two dozen in Kansas. More than a dozen in Ohio. More than half a dozen in New York. With additional musicals written around the United States and abroad in Italy and Russia. In addition, we have published two songbooks, produced a documentary film entitled Boundless and have built a catalogue of our original shows available for licensing around the globe. Because of the work we do, thousands upon thousands of students in four countries on two continents have learned that their voices can and must be heard.

That is something we must celebrate! ALL alumni, families, former staff, board members and fans are invited to the THREE DAY celebration in Fort Lauderdale, Florida October 25th, 26th and 27th, 2019.  There will be a free event, a gala evening, an outdoor gathering and more good times than anyone can handle. It would be our joy to have alumni from throughout the years come and toast the little organization that went from one workshop in Salina, Kansas to countless workshops around the globe!

The following are our events for the weekend.
There are limited tickets to all events, so please book well in advance.
