Review for Gulfshore Playhouse Inc, Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I write this review as a non-profit professional and as a patron of Gulfshore Playhouse.

As a non-profit professional, I am extremely impressed with what Gulfshore Playhouse has accomplished as a solid 501 (c) 3 organization. They effectively squeeze as much value out of each dollar as possible which has allowed them to not only survive, but downright THRIVE in a recessing economy - a feat almost unheard of as we watched many arts organizations around the country close their doors these past few difficult years. They have successfully increased their ticket sales and subscription base and strategically advanced the organization through adroit board selection, programming and effective and creative marketing/positioning. It is unquestionable that Gulfshore Playhouse has now "arrived" as a staple of the Southwest Florida arts community.

As an avid theater patron, Gulfshore Playhouse's commitment to offering a superior product/production is extremely apparent. Whether the production is comedic or dramatic, the company always offers a high quality performance with professional actors. They do not allow budget constraints to hamper the "product" in any way - they find a way to give the best production possible and do not accept mediocrity. And they do it a price which makes the offerings available to the everyman. You do not have to make a million dollars to enjoy a production at Gulfshore Playhouse - their attention to assuring the theater is accessible to everyone, especially in the current economic state, is commendable.

I would not change their efforts, I would encourage them to continue their strategic processes, they are serving Gulfshore Playhouse well.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I currently work at the executive level in the Naples non-profit sector (though not for Gulfshore Playhouse, and I am not related to anyone employed by or on the board of Gulfshore Playhouse). I am also a patron of Gulfshore Playhouse.
