Harold Wishes a Happy 35th Anniversary to the McCallum Theatre

This January, the McCallum Theatre celebrates 35 years. It opened on January 2nd, 1988. 

Some trivia for you: 

The very first night ever at the McCallum was a gala for the ages. It was a tribute to Bob Hope, hosted by Lucille Ball. 

If you looked up to the box seats that night, you would have seen President Ronald and Nancy Reagan and former President Gerald and Betty Ford.  Desert Sun society editor Allene Arthur called it the “party of the decade.”

Here’s to more parties and more decades at the McCallum!
