Back to the Dean Martin Show!

June 22, 7:30 pm ~ Felix J Denaeu, Jr. as Dean Martin

Felix was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He grew up with such television favorites as, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Jackie Gleason Show, and of course The Dean Martin Show. He collected almost all of Dean’s albums of the time and would practice impersonating him on his record player. He would also imitate a number of other celebrities as well.

After graduating high school, Felix joined the U.S. Navy, and continued to act and impersonate people while off duty. On his free time from the ship/base, Felix would go to Las Vegas to catch some shows. When he went to see Dean Martin at the MGM Grand, he was able to get on stage with Dean on a couple separate occasions, and performed his impersonation of him. Dean was pleasantly amazed with the likeness, and said, “That’s pretty damn good, kid.”

After the Navy, Felix went onto college and received his Bachelor of Science in Communication / Theatre Arts at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He auditioned for Walt Disney World and landed the job to open Disney/MGM Studios, bringing him to Central Florida.


Felix currently works for Universal Studios Orlando, impersonating a variety of movie celebrities and performing in their shows. He has been with Universal since its opening.

Quality Programming


Our 125-year old building sprang to life in 1893, and continues to serve its original purpose to this day: to be a gathering place for the community.

Our guests can attend a Broadway quality musical or play, a concert, a cabaret, or any of the wonderful programs presented by our Youth

Theatre, The LimeLights.



Our Partnerships in the community help us to continue to provide all the benefits of a premier regional arts center located in Porter County, Indiana, and serving all of Northwest Indiana.

Our partners include not only resident acts and dining associates, but sponsors, donors, restoration experts, and local government agencies as well.

Historic Preservation


Dedicated as a memorial to veterans of all wars, our building continues to serve its original purpose as a gathering place for the community.

We believe in the preservation and growth of this living memorial, and we use theatre and the arts to build our community and create a sense of belonging.

Stellar Performances


Our performers and performances are what set us apart from other community theatres, and why we are one of the premier arts venues in

Porter County and the greater Northwest Indiana region.

As one of the premier arts venues in Northwest Indiana, we offer four Broadway quality musicals and one play each season.
