“Vaudevillians of Centerport and Greenlawn”

Presented by: Greenlawn Centerport Historical Association and Toby Kissam, a Historian

Saturday, November 4, 2023 at 2pm


About a hundred years ago, Greenlawn and Centerport were filled with Vaudeville actors, directors, and producers.   Deanne Rathke, Director Emeritus of Greenlawn Centerport Historical Association, researched a little-known fact about the Vaudevillians of Greenlawn and Centerport.  In the exciting lecture, we show many original pictures in the GCHA collection.  In July of 1906, the theatrical colony made a significant addition to the Centerport community. The entertainers founded the first Centerport Yacht Club.    The Greenlawn map of 1909 shows that the Greenlawn theater colony had an impressive group of managers and actors, as well as the President of Columbia Amusement Company, J. Herbert Mack.
