Here is your chance to meet Dick Van Dyke, his wife Arlene and Geffen Playhouse Board Chairman Frank Mancuso for lunch at the Malibu Beach Inn.
A new online auction is giving you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit down with the stage and screen legend and benefit the Geffen Playhouse. Founded by theater, film and television luminary Gil Cates, the Geffen Playhouse has been an integral part of Los Angeles theater since opening its doors in 1995. Noted for its intimacy and celebrated for its commitment to the development of new plays, the Geffen Playhouse continues to present a body of work that garners national recognition. Named in honor of entertainment mogul and philanthropist David Geffen, who made the initial donation to the theater, the organization is currently helmed by Artistic Director Randall Arney, Managing Director Ken Novice and Chairman of the Board Frank Mancuso. An active member of the community, the Geffen Playhouse has a groundbreaking education and outreach program that targets students, seniors and everyone in between who otherwise would not have access to live theater.
Actor, comedian, writer, singer, dancer, and producer Dick Van Dyke has had a career spanning seven decades. Van Dyke starred in such iconic films as Bye Bye Birdie, Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and in the TV series The Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis: Murder. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and received The Life Achievement Award at the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony on January 27, 2013.
