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.

Everything Kristen Coury touches turns to gold. Her directing skills and creative decisions are remarkable. An evening at a Gulfshore Playhouse production is always an evening to remember.

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!
