Mount Dora in Lake County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Sonnentag Theater at the Icehouse
On February 7, 1949, The Icehouse Theatre theater opened its first show, a light comedy called, Returned Engagement. For the next decade, the Players produced sixty shows in the converted ice plant.
In 1958, on land donated by the City, the current 270-seat Icehouse was opened at 1100 N. Unser Street, at the corner of 11th Avenue. In 2011, a major renovation was launched with a generous gift from the Sonnentag Foundation and the largesse of several other donors. In appreciation the theater was re-christened.
Erected by Sonnentag Theater at the Icehouse.
