Reviews for Gulfshore Playhouse Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Gulfshore Playhouse is indisputably the finest professional theatre in the Naples, FL metropolitan area. Although Naples is an affluent community of well-educated professionals, it's exposure to the theatre arts is sub-standard. Gulfshore Playhouse fills that niche perfectly. Moreover, the Playhouse's educational mission -- serving area students, residents, and visitors -- offers a cultural experience too often missing from typical school curricula.

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

Over a 4+ year period, my wife and I have attended virtually every production of the Gulfshore Playhouse. Each has been a notable theatrical experience -- superb talent, brilliant directing, stimulating and provocative plays, and exceptional set design.

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

I would try to locate a permanent home for Gulfshore Playhouse so that it might become a better-recognized and accessible community landmark.

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

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

help to find it a permanent home. Otherwise, it is near perfect!

We have been a part of Gulfshore Playhouse since its beginning and have watched Kristen Coury, the Producing Artistic Director, bring the magic of professional theatre to SW Florida. We have seen every single production and each time, the shows get better and better. This year is the first year we are doing 4 productions...for extended runs....and the tickets are flying out the door. My husband and I are so very proud to be a part of this dream coming true!

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

watching the productions get better and the audiences grow.

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

None -- but if I could, build Gulfshore Playhouse its very own building and rehearsal hall.
