Cultural Park Theatre wrapped up the Sound of Music on January 22, 2023, the first of the Broadway Series 2023. However, the new year’s fun has just begun! Pippin opens on February 16 and runs through February 25, 2023, and next on stage is Grease from March through March 19. Pippin is a musical about a young prince is a soldier in his father’s army. His father, King Charles, and Pippin have a relationship that twists and turns, resulting in significant life lessons for Pippin. Grease is a musical favorite with 1950s rock & roller high schoolers and a surprising romance. What’s new at the theatre are food trucks at every performance.
“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,” says Mark Fleming, the Executive Director of the Cultural Park Theatre Company.
Favorites such as Dave’s Neopolitan Pizza, Skew U Food Truck, Double Dee’s, and Cosmic Cupcakes are just a few that are scheduled. Check the online calendar for more details.
Also new are online ticketing options with lower prices on performances, making live theatre something everyone can enjoy. Plus, the parking is free and convenient. Those who love music can enjoy the theatres’ Concert Series with Martin Andrew and his Forever Rod Tribute Show in February, a fantastic tribute coming to the Theatre from the Las Vegas stage. Also, coming up in February is a Book Launch and Author Meet & Greet.
The Theatre is excited to welcome Carol Freeman, author of seven cozy mysteries, as she introduces her brand-new book, The Cape Coral Cannoli: A Taste of Death, on Sunday, February 26 at 1 pm. Carol will be joined by Bill, her husband and partner-in-crime, and close collaborator. The Theatre asks that each patron bring a donation of canned goods, non-perishable food items, or a new, unwrapped toy to every performance. The donations will be distributed to members of the community who are still struggling from the aftereffects of Hurricane Ian.
