Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional regional theater, has its eye on the future as it works toward the creation of a cultural landmark facility in downtown Naples. The theater recently reached a pivotal $20 million fundraising milestone in its Next Stage Capital Campaign to build a new Theatre and Education Center at Goodlette-Frank Road and First Avenue South. To keep momentum moving forward, it has announced three new executive team hires who will play a pivotal role in bringing these plans to fruition.
Kimberly Dye has been named Chief Advancement Officer for Gulfshore Playhouse. In her role, she will be heading up the organization’s development and marketing teams and overseeing the successful completion of the theater’s Next Stage Capital Campaign to raise funds for the new facility. With more than two decades of experience working in development and the nonprofit sector, Dye has previously worked on fundraising efforts in support of regional public media organizations and the Florida Everglades. She has taught at the university level, is involved locally with the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and sits on the board of directors for Earn to Learn FL.
