Entertainment

The greater Fort Myers area offers many professional entertainment venues for your enjoyment.  

A popular favorite among our residents, the Barbara B. MannPerforming Arts Hall is the premier place for Broadway musicals in Fort Myers. Located on the Edison Community College campus, it's the only theater in the area with the size and technology     to host musicals like Guys and Dolls, as well as rock and jazz concerts and much more. The Hall is also the             home of the Southwest Florida Symphony from December through April. The Hall is only 6 miles from Cinnamon       Cove.


Located a very short distance from Cinnamon Cove, the
 Broadway Palm Dinner Theater has been in existence for over 17 years and has had over 175,000 theater patrons this year. The main stage area seats 450. The Off-Broadway Palm, a 90-seat theatre, is adjacent. The main stage area features an award-winning buffet and offers eight (8) Broadway style musicals each season. The 2010-2011 season will include: I Love a Piano, Hairspray, Holly Jolly Christmas, The Full Monty, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Smoke On The Mountain and Annie. This theatre is open year-round, provides handicapped accessible seating, and offers hearing assistance devices.

Located in the heart of the Fort Myers River District, the Florida Repertory Theater  is part of a relatively young community that is growing and developing rapidly. Housed in the completely renovated Arcade theater, the 'Rep' sits on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River within walking distance of the marina and a plethora of affordable restaurants. Florida Rep is a not-for-profit theatre group headed by Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo. Although formed in 1998, the ensemble-based company is a continuation of the troupe that Cacioppo                developed over a twenty-year period on Sanibel and Captiva, chiefly at the Pirate Playhouse. It is a fully professional    Equity company on contract with the Actors' (AEA), Directors' (SSDC) and Designers' (USA) unions, and comprised      of professional actors, stage managers, directors, designers and technicians. Looking for something a bit different?    Visit the links below for a small sampling of other local entertainment venues.
