The Alhambra Theatre is the nation’s oldest continually operating professional dinner theatre and the only professional resident theatre between Atlanta and Miami.  Opened in 1967, The Alhambra has hosted legends such as Tony Curtis, Claude Aiken, Sid Cesar and Cesar Romero, and, recently, Loretta Swit. The Alhambra was the place of Betty Grable’s final acting role.  The Alhambra is also home to former Miss America, Orange Park native Leanza Cornett who started at the Alhambra when she was 15.  In November 2009, the Alhambra was purchased by Theatre Partners, LLC, headed by Jacksonville entrepreneur and Alhambra patron, Craig Smith as way to give back to Jacksonville and preserve what he believes is one of its cultural jewels.
