Mark Two’s Alice Byrd seriously ill

Alice Byrd

Corrected phone number is below:

I have had word from actress Ann Hurst that Alice Byrd, who was the longtime box-office manager for the Mark Two Dinner Theater, is seriously ill and is in the Lakeland Medical Center. Ann suggests that it would do Alice good to hear from her friends.

If you’d like to call Alice, her phone number at the medical center is 863-687-1100 Ext. 6616. If you’d prefer to write her a note, her home address is 29 Hill St., Lakeland, Fl. 33815.

  1. Betsey – thanks for the heads up re: Alice.
    Alice’s eubullient personality was loved by the Mark Two audiences, but for those who worked backstage, actors and staff, Alice provided the calming effect needed for ‘the show to go on.’

  2. Elizabeth,
    I called Miss Alice today. She said she was surrounded by “nice young men” in her room. I told her that she was always surrounding herself with nice young men – but I had to ask where she managed to find Chorus Boys in Lakeland.

    I know she’ll appreciate the calls from her friends. She seemed to perk up and laugh. So, don’t hesitate to call. One minor correction- the number for the Lakeland Medical Center as you initially listed it was incorrect. The number is 863 -687-1100 ext. 6616

    Thanks for letting us know!
    Michael
