Lesley Farmer, managing director of Lexington Children’s Theatre, estimated that 500 to 600 people attended the three-hour block party Saturday for the theater’s 75th birthday.
Those who came watched an open rehearsal of Anansi The Spider, took tours of the stage, had a question-and-answer session with costume and set designers, and participated in various workshops.
Other activities included a ticket give-away, cake, and face-painting.
“We had people who had never been here and people who haven’t been in a long time,” said Farmer.
