The DeStefano room is named after Henrietta DeStefano. Henri played a major part in having the Camille Playhouse built those many years ago. Henri was a very close friend of both Camille & Gladys Sams. (Lightner, Porter). After Camille’s death in 1962, the Sams Foundation, under Henri’s influence, decided to build a community theater in her honor. Henri served as President of the Camille Board of Directors, and was in countless plays herself. Her admiration for the Theatre lives on through her dedication to the Playhouse, and the many lives she touched.
Our beautiful DeStefano room is the perfect place for your next birthday party, baby/bridal shower, Quinceañera, or club meeting. It holds 120 persons seated comfortably, has a caterer’s kitchen, tables and chairs, fully carpeted with restrooms, DJ’s and bands are welcome. For more information, please call the Camille Playhouse at (956) 542-8900.
