Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre’s 25-year celebration
Bill Clinton was president then and “Earring Magic Ken” was Barbie’s new best friend.
But 25 years ago the landmark impact in Southwest Florida was the Prather family's converting a closed grocery store into the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. The venue in 25 seasons has entertained more than a million of us, has introduced kids to performance art, has made holidays and special events especially memorable, has opened the door to promising actors and to backstage crews, today is the centerpiece of the revitalized Royal Palm Square retail district in Fort Myers.
Starting in September, Broadway Palm this season will run eight mainstage productions, five productions in The Off Broadway Palm, four Children’s Theatre productions, five concerts and three special engagements. The season opens Sept. 7 with Groovin: The 60s and 70s Musical, stages the musical
Pippin in October and the holiday classic A Christmas Story starting in late November.
For several reasons, Broadway Palm has transformed its neighborhood, certainly the way many in Southwest Florida view live theater, offering direct Broadway and New York-quality stage performances with the option of a chef 's meal, antrue
