On September 26 of the year 1916, the Playhouse at White Lake opened to the public as the
Nufer-Adams Playhouse. To celebrate the Grand Old Lady’s 104th Birthday, a curated collection
of classic films will be made available to stream directly to your computer, tablet, phone, or smart TV
through the Playhouse ticketing website. Each featured film was once shown at The Playhouse
during its time as a movie theatre in the 1920s, 30s, 40s, or 50s. Admission begins at $5 for
patrons to stream, with rates available for couples and watch parties. Additionally, a special
introduction opens the movies with past or present Playhouse Managing Directors and featuring
tidbits of interest relating to fashion, food, arts, culture and the lifestyle of those historic times.

In honor of this important occasion, The Playhouse at White Lake will release five classic
movies as part of their Anniversary Classic Throwback Movie series, available to begin
streaming on-demand beginning on the 104th anniversary, September 26 and made available
throughout the end of the year. The Classic Throwback Movie series will include The General
(1928) with an introduction by Tom Harryman, Steamboat Bill (1928) with an introduction by
Christopher Beaman, The Little Princess (1939) with an introduction by Beth Beaman,
His Girl Friday (1940) with an introduction by Katie (Trzaska) Miller, and Father’s Little
Dividend (1951) with an introduction by Cindy Beth Davis-Dykema. The Playhouse continues to create new content, from high quality films, to
plays and music for virtual audiences across the country. Stay up to date by joining their newsletter at the website: wwww.theplayhouseatwhitelake.org
