Florida Monthly Magazine chose the Waterfront Playhouse (operated by the Key West Players) as the best professional theater in Florida ! The Playhouse does not disappoint. Each season we present a delightful mix of comedy, musical, and drama -- with the major musical in the heart of the Key West winter season! We also present 3 or more one night only special events featuring the best of the talent of Key West -- a remarkable group of talented artists with experience on Broadway and across the other venues of America! If you are going to be in Key West, a show at the Waterfront Playhouse is not to be missed. Check us out on www.waterfrontplayhouse.org

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I attend all productions and am continually amazed at both the artistic quality and the remarkable sets/technical capability. As Treasurer, I also know that this is a remarkable financially viable organization that not only grows annually but also continues a great capital campaign and grows an endowment fund. We've been going for 71 years and getting better all the time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get the word out about the theater to more folks considering travel to Key West and the Florida Keys. We are working actively now to develop a "modernized" marketing plan to meet this goal.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Technical improvements were needed to provide sound quality . The theater is in a building from the 1800's -- we needed the best capability to project sound to the audience. With such fabulous productions, the audience experience needs to be the best!

Why did you make your donation at this time?

New technology allows us to do even better.... a little money goes a very long way in Key West. AND, State of Florida supports for the arts is being reduced if not totally eliminated.

What would you tell others about this organization?

We have been here for over 70 years. We are rated as the best professional theater in Floirda. We are well managed -- artistically, technically and financially. If you come to Key West and don't see a show at the Waterfront Playhouse, you have made a big mistake. All donations to the theater (annual gifts, capital campaign, and endowment) are well managed, used as intended and for a very good purpose!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
