About Cultural Park Theatre Company

Cultural Park Theatre, located in Cape Coral, Florida, has a rich history deeply rooted in the local community.

The theater was founded in 1963 by Herb Strauss, who had a vision of providing a space where local residents could showcase their talents and enjoy live theater productions. Originally known as the “Cape Coral Players,” the theater began its journey in a small, rented storefront.

Over the years, as Cape Coral grew and developed, so did the theater. In 1982, Cultural Park Theatre found its permanent home in the Cultural Park area of Cape Coral, where it resides to this day. This move marked a significant milestone for the theater, allowing it to expand its offerings and reach a wider audience.
