The Campaign





Little more than a decade ago, Gulfshore Playhouse was the vision of a passionate few. Today, it is a thriving institution that has engaged more than 250,000 patrons through world-class professional productions. Years of consistent growth due to the quality of programming, the support of a generous community, and the visionary leadership of the Board of Directors and Founder and CEO Kristen Coury have led us to this auspicious moment.

We envision a campus crackling with energy at all hours of the day. Residents, visitors, students, and friends will go to Gulfshore Playhouse to be inspired and enriched by a performance or class, to mingle post-show with actors at the bar, or to relax mid-day and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere. Serving as both a destination location and a landmark institution at the gateway to downtown Naples, Gulfshore Playhouse will also be a significant economic driver for Naples and the region.

Our new home will allow us to expand our capability to provide for a vast array of programming, including classic musicals, pre-Broadway tryouts, cabarets and jazz concerts, edgier fare, and world premieres. We’ll offer a myriad of educational offerings including summer training programs and after-school classes, community outreach, adult classes, and programs for at-risk and special needs children. This space will welcome members of our community to come together to engage with like-minded arts lovers in experiencing quality theatre, learning new things and gaining fresh perspectives.
