The Parker curtain rose for the first time on February 6, 1967. One of Fort Lauderdale’s first venues, the neo-classical Playhouse, was built by Dr. Louis Parker and is managed now by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. This 1,147-seat fully equipped theater plays an important role in the community by fueling economic development, while also bringing the community together with performances, activities and educational programming.

Our Mission

The The Parker brings community together through the arts by providing entertainment and educational programming.
