The world premiere of the heartwarming musical romantic comedy, Boynton Beach Club, will take place on Thursday, March 16 at 8 p.m. at the Manatee
Performing Arts Center.
Boynton Beach Club explores our amazing capacity to rebound and fall in love again – at any age.

Soon they find themselves back in the “dating game” after decades of married life, only to discover that all the rules have changed.
