Gulfshore Playhouse

The Gulfshore Playhouse Cultural Campus, located near First Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road at the gateway to downtown Naples, is designed to be a landmark for future generations. The expansion is being funded by the Next Stage Campaign and will be an attraction for the entire Southwest Florida region.

The unique sculptural architecture of the new Gulfshore Playhouse is designed to reflect the creative work taking place within the venue. The undulating façade emulates the surrounding environment with the fluidity of the sand, sun, and sea. The exterior materials of the building were selected to be congruous with the local climate.

Gulfshore Playhouse, the professional theatre company of Naples, FL, has been producing Broadway-caliber shows for nearly 20 years. It has developed a strong following within the Naples community, which is known for being supportive of the arts. Gulfshore Playhouse is a not-for-profit organization that relies on donations to operate.

The development team led by Garfield includes Design Architect H3/Arquitectonica; AMS Planning & Research; theatre consultant Fischer Dachs Associates; landscape architect ArqGEO; lighting designer HLB Lighting Design; acoustics consultant Jaffe Holden Acoustics; and general contractor Gilbane. Construction commenced in January 2022, with a planned Grand Opening in early 2024.
