Today, one of the things on my to-do list was to organize all of the files in my ‘Downloads’ folder. It may seem like an odd task to some people, but I download a lot of attachments and images onto my computer from email every day, and most of them are very important to keep...


Announcing a Season

This past Monday, we announced our 2014-2015 season. And I am so excited about the amazing plays that will be produced on the Norris Center Stage this upcoming year! But, whew, getting everything together was a bit of a whirlwind! What goes into a season announcement, you might ask? A LOT! First, our Artistic Team...


The Wonderful World of Group Ticketing

As many of you may know, Naples is a very active town! And it seems like there is a group for nearly everything you could imagine. From groups interested in dance, fly fishing, politics, or golf to alumni clubs to arts specific groups; Naples has a group for everyone and whatever they could possibly enjoy....


Into the Vortex

Being a native Midwesterner, and having just returned from the cold and snowy Chicagoland area after the holidays; it seems like all everyone can talk about is a vortex! Now, I got out of Chicago just before the polar vortex hit, so I didn’t have to deal with the below zero temperatures but we did...


The Creativity of Giving

It’s the end of the year, and charitable giving is on everyone’s mind in Naples. Or at least, in the version of Naples I see every day. I do work for a 501(c)3 organization, by the way! As anyone who has been to a Gulfshore Playhouse production may have heard, we rely upon fundraising in...


The New York Times

I was a Journalism major in college, and to me and my classmates the New York Times was the Holy Grail. So, when “NEW YORK TIMES” showed up on the caller ID at my desk on November 21st (at 2:05pm, if you want to be exact), I can’t tell you how shocked I was. My...


Working in Theatre

A funny thing occurred to me the other day. I have chosen to have a career making theatre, but I don’t actually get the chance to see plays very often. I know that there are many reasons for this circumstance, but there are some days that I wish that I could spend a little bit...


Challenge Accepted

As you may have noticed, this week all of our blog posts have had a central theme: Harry Potter. And as each post was unveiled, I felt the challenge to somehow frame my post around the Wizarding World. Well, challenge accepted. As I was wracking my brain trying to figure out exactly how I could...


Just Keep Swimming

At this point, our regular readers are likely a bit sick of all blogs referring to how busy everyone at Gulfshore Playhouse is. But sometimes, the pure fact of being busy is all consuming. And one thing I’ve decided in the process of being busy is: I need to think five steps ahead. Just to...


Happy Halloween!

Hello Dear Readers, The Gulfshore Playhouse staff spent the evening on 5th Avenue for the 3rd Annual Halloween Spooktacular, handing out candy to kids and brochures to adults. We’ve been all hands on deck with tech, previews of Something Intangible, and the Halloween event this week and it seems time has flown by ridiculously quickly. But tomorrow...
