Fifty years after Parker Playhouse opened its doors and ushered in a new era of cultural development in South Florida, the Campaign for the Parker sparked the imagination of the community. Led by the Broward Performing Arts Foundation, the campaign raised more than $30 million to restore this iconic theater to its past glory, paying homage to its history and introducing amenities for today’s theatergoer. Thanks to the generosity of more than 300 donors, large and small, the fundraising goal was exceeded in less than two years. Construction is well underway and a grand re-opening of the new Parker is planned for early next year.

Funding for this project is provided in part by the Board of County Commissioners of Broward County, Florida, as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.
