Miami Country Day is one of the area’s top college preparatory private schools for Pre-K through 12th grade students looking to gain an edge. For 75 years this co-educational, interdenominational school has been helping students not only develop academic skills, but also a strong world view. The sixteen acre campus, situated in North Miami, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as well as the Southern Association of Independent Schools, and features collegiate level athletic facilities, tech-integrated classrooms and an academic center for children with learning differences. In the works is a new center for learning resources that will include a new school library and studios for television and media production.

Back in 1950, when it was still known as the Miami Beach Municipal Auditorium, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, and Frank Sinatra could be seen in the audience acting like average Joes while enjoying song-and-dance shows and boxing bouts. Throughout the following decades, the entertainment mecca has remained a magnet for famous entertainers. In 1964, when the city of Miami asked famed funnyman and honeymooner Jackie Gleason to move his television variety show from New York to Miami Beach, he relocated in a bang-zoom, declaring “Miami Beach audiences are the greatest in the world,” then muttering under his breath, “and New York audiences smell like Art Carney’s hat.” Rechristened as The Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts in 1987, the theater hosted the best in Broadway shows, dance and classical-music performances, and concerts throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. In 2007, the venue underwent a multimillion-dollar face- and body-lift, adding even more glitz to the sleek columned entrance and the spacious multichandeliered auditorium. Now merged with California’s famed Fillmore chain, the theater has inherited a rich rock ‘n’ roll history to add to its already lofty annals.
