Actors Theatre’s annual Lobster Feast fundraiser is not just a way to support the institution’s important work; it’s an excellent excuse to get in costume, eat like you’re headed for the electric chair and dance the night away. This year’s feast on January 27 will feature a lively local theme and lots of fun to look forward to. To learn more about the delightful event, we spoke with Actor’s Marketing Manager Melissa Hines.

What is the theme of this year’s Lobster Feast?

This year’s theme is “Legendary Louisville.” Encounter the people, places and history that have made this city such a landmark. Let’s #KeepLobsterLocal and show pride for our city!

How should guests plan their wardrobe for the evening?

Wear anything that makes Louisville legendary to you! Whether you prefer a sports jersey or a fascinator, this evening celebrates your unique Louisville style. Guests in costume, cocktail attire or casual wear are all welcome.

How has this event evolved in the past few years?

Consistently rated one of Louisville’s “best parties,” Lobster Feast has taken guests to far-flung vacation destinations and on fairy tale adventures. This year is a Louisville homecoming celebration that you’ll be talking about for years.

This year, the Louisville City Skyline welcomes guests upon arrival. After grabbing an Old Forester cocktail, make sure to stop and take pictures with Louisville Legends on our Walk of Fame. Stroll through the silent auction as iconic imagery from “The Best Two Minutes in Sports” makes you feel like you’re watching the race at the finish line.

Are there food options for attendees who may not like lobster?

All tickets include an open bar and an all-you-can-eat lobster and dinner buffet. The incredible staff at the Marriott will craft a delicious locally-inspired menu which accommodates all dietary preferences.

Who are the generous sponsors who help make this party a success?

We would like to thank our title sponsor, Old Forester, as well as our supporting sponsors: White Clay, Republic National Distributing Company and, of course, The Voice-Tribune! We’d also like thank our dedicated co-chairs, Mac Thompson and Wendy Sirchio, and the entire committee who together make this event possible.
