Ed Sullivan came to Ventura.

The many many weeks of rehearsal paid off.

On Saturday, September 17th, and Sunday, September 18th, the Ventura Marina Community Theatre presented the Ed Sullivan Show starring Alan McIntosh as Ed Sullivan. It was presented in the clubhouse.

It featured the talents of the members of the senior Ventura Marina Community. Performers and crew were from all walks of life, some still working and some retired. It was held in their large multi-purpose room to an enthusiastic full crowd. It took those attending back to Sunday nights when families gathered together in front of their television sets to watch Ed Sullivan.

They enjoyed Elvis Presley, Phyllis Diller, Sonny and Cher, Abbott and Costello, The Mamas and the Papas, The Beatles, Tiny Tim, The Great Donzini and Bambi, Patsy Cline, George Carlin and The Ike and Tina Turner Revue. The many many weeks of rehearsal paid off as seen in the quality of the performances and the approval of the crowd.

The Ventura Marina Community has 310 manufactured homes and was built in 1965. It is located at 1215 Anchors Way Dr, Ventura.
