Hurricane Ian Recovery: The city needed to inspect all buildings, ours included. Due to the overwhelming demand for inspections it took some time, but we are now reopened and ready to proceed with some rearranging. Our hearts go out to those who are still dealing with challenges.

With the newly-landscaped grounds of Cultural Park as a backdrop, we will be featuring some of SW Florida’s best food trucks during each performance. Favorites such as Dave’s Neapolitan Pizza, Skew U Food Truck, Double Dee’s and Cosmic Cupcakes are just a few that are scheduled. Visit our website for details on when your favorite will be here.
We’re excited to offer our online ticketing options to all patrons.

We are asking that each patron bring a donation of canned goods, non-perishable food items or a new, unwrapped toy to every performance. These donations will be distributed to members of the community who are still struggling.
