(West Palm Beach, FL) The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts hosted the first annual Alan Lebow Award for Excellence in Shakespearean Performance at a special reception in the Persson Rehearsal Hall on March 20.

Presented by Kids’ Dreams in honor of Alan Lebow, who passed away last year just a month before his 82nd birthday, the Award was inspired by his lifelong love of Shakespeare and poetry.

“This was our first year and we had 75 students who signed up for the competition and 49 who auditioned. The winners competed by reciting up to three minutes of the Shakespearean selection of their choice,” said Patricia Lebow. “I am very proud that Kids’ Dreams will be presenting these Awards annually at the Kravis Center in conjunction with their production of a Shakespearean play.”

Three students from Palm Beach Atlantic University and four from the Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. School of the Arts each received a check for $500 presented by Mrs. Lebow and Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric L. Bradshaw.

From Palm Beach Atlantic University:

+ Bridget Williams (age 20), who lives in Lake Worth
+ Rico Reid (28), of West Palm Beach
+ Pierre Tannous (20), of Boynton Beach

+ Philip Labes (16), who lives in Royal Palm Beach

In addition to the cash prize, the seven winners also received tickets to the Acting Company and The Guthrie Theater’s performance of Romeo and Juliet in the Kravis Center’s Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Playhouse. Free tickets to the production were also given to 23 additional Lebow Award participants and the five judges.

“My husband loved poetry, art, literature and music,” said Patricia Lebow. “I know he is so proud of what we are doing in his memory.”

About Kids’ Dreams:

For the past two summers, Kids’ Dreams sent children from the Youth Empowerment Center of the Criminal Justice Commission of Palm Beach County to camp at Palm Beach Zoo. In addition to animal encounters and a visit to the South Florida Science Museum, the campers spent time getting to know a sheriff's deputy. Older youth were given a Narcotic Overdose Prevention and Education (NOPE) Task Force presentation. Kids’ Dreams also hosted 140 youngsters during the Max Planck Science Tunnel exhibit at the museum and has awarded a partial college scholarship; plus, the charity helps at-risk youth pay for academic assistance.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is a not-for-profit performing arts center whose mission is to enhance the quality of life in Palm Beach County by presenting a diverse schedule of national and international artists and companies of the highest quality; by offering comprehensive arts education programs; by providing a Palm Beach County home in which local and regional arts organizations can showcase their work; and by providing economic catalyst and community leadership in West Palm Beach, supporting efforts to increase travel and tourism to Palm Beach County.
