September marks the beginning of our Broadway series season and we celebrate the opening of our 60th anniversary season with School of Rock on Sept. 22 and running through Oct. 2.
Performance times have been changed, with shows on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and our matinee on Sundays at 3 p.m.
As we all continue to battle the economic issues caused by the ongoing Covid pandemic, we have lowered our ticket prices to make attending live theater more affordable for everyone. Start planning your entertainment calendar now. Call for your individual, season or flex pass tickets today.
Season Tickets or Flex Pass Tickets? What’s the difference? Current prices are $175 for a season pass and $200 for a Flex Pass. The Season Pass offers the same seat to our patrons for each show – they are sold as a block of 8 (one ticket for each scheduled Broadway performance). The Flex Pass is also sold in a block of 8 tickets, but it gives our patrons the “flexibility” of what show and on what date they want to see (for example, our patron could choose to use four of their flex tickets for one Broadway Series show on a particular date – they’re not limited to their one chosen seat for that specific show).
Sponsors and patrons are encouraged to review the new levels of support that are available. Patrons who contribute any amount will be featured on our lobby digital displays. Sponsor and ad pricing has been revised and one can now advertise in our playbill for as little as $35 for a one-time individual show ad. Visit our website for updated information on sponsorship opportunities.
Lobby renovations continue at Cultural Park. Finishing decorative touches are being placed, the paint scheme has been chosen and painting has begun. Watch for features on our website and Facebook page highlighting our “new” lobby.
Park construction is near an end. It’s been an experience, but we are excited to watch as final landscaping and lighting is installed in Cultural Park. The park has been transformed from a watery field into a useful, family friendly environment, where CPTC-sponsored as well as city-sponsored events are planned. We’re looking forward to staging several events in and around the park itself.
Food trucks are on site. You asked for it, and we listened. We’ll be working with some of our local food truck vendors on Broadway series production weekends to provide yummy eats and treats.
Online ticketing is coming. We continue to perfect the online ticketing option for CPTC and should be up and running very soon.
The Cultural Park Theater is located at 528 Cultural Park Blvd. in Cape Coral. Call the box office for more information at 239-772-5862 or visit www.CulturalParkTheater.com
