Pantages Theatre Playbills from the touring productions of Wicked and The Lion King were among the items interred in a time capsule commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to the New York Daily News.

A ceremony commemorating the burial took place Oct. 28 in Hollywood, with the actual internment taking place Oct. 29.

Former "The Price is Right" host Bob Barker and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Leron Gubler presided over the ceremony, at which more than 50 items were placed in the time capsule. They included a framed, autographed picture of Joanne Woodward, one of the first recipients of a Walk of Fame star and the first to pose for a picture beside it; a piece of Elvis Presley's star encased in Lucite; various DVD's of films and Oscar and Emmy memorabilia; a script of "Casablanca"; a replica of the Capitol Records building; and greetings from various star recipients, including Barker, who added a note containing his well-known warning, "Have your pet spayed or neutered."

A special ceremony was held to commemorate completion of the Walk of Fame's construction in 1960, although final construction did not actually take place until 1961. The stars, placed on the sidewalk extending along Hollywood Boulevard, celebrate actors, directors and other personalities for their work in film, television, theatre and music.

The time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 2060.
