Gulfshore Playhouse, a not-for-profit, professional theatre company located in Naples, Florida, is seeking a dynamic, detail-oriented and experienced individual to serve as Production Manager. Gulfshore Playhouse was founded in 2004 and has experienced sixteen years of explosive growth based in artistic and arts-education success. From modest beginnings, the organization today has a 9 month season, extensive educational and public programs that engage both underserved and prosperous segments of the community, an annual budget of $4.5M, a 20 member Board, 40 full-time staff, roughly 100 volunteers, about 1,300 subscribers, and an annual attendance of about 100,000.
