We are inviting you to a special celebration of life event for Lenore Justman, who has been a pillar of our community for over three decades. Join us in honoring Lenore’s legacy and share your stories and memories with us. It will be a time of love, remembrance, and community support. We look forward to seeing you there.

This past summer our theatre community lost one of the sweetest souls to grace our theatre.

Lenore Justman.

Actor, costumer, stitcher, wardrobe mistress, concierge, friend. A pillar of our theatre community at Sacramento Shakespeare Festival and an ardent lover of all things wonderful. Her laugh made you smile, even if it was just in memory. She was always willing to pitch in and help.

I was honored to work with her on my very first show here in Sacramento, “The Wake of Jamey Foster” at The Show Below. She was our costume designer and cared so much about how we felt about what we were wearing and if it matched our characters. That started a three-decade friendship that I cherish.

Many of you may also remember her as the “concierge” at the park for the festival. She was often the welcoming face you saw as you headed into the “bowl” or the person who sold you our merchandise. She would welcome everyone, have a chat, have a laugh, and wish you a pleasant experience.

If you knew Lenore, we’d love to hear your stories. Please join us.

When: Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 6:00 pm.

Where: Art Court Theatre, Sacramento City College, 3835 Freeport Blvd. (parking on 12th Ave. is free on Sundays)

What: Please bring your stories to share over some snacks and drinks. If you have a treat you’d like to share, please note the ingredients on a small card so those with food sensitivities can be informed. Also, please no alcohol (we are on campus.)

Plates/napkins/cups would also be appreciated.
