The Islands of The Bahamas Imagination Series allows us to bring more family performances to our community and continue to ignite that spark for live performances that will last a lifetime.”

“The Bahamas’ partnership with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts offers our islands tremendous exposure, which will be quite instrumental in getting our message to Floridians that The Bahamas, just 50 miles offshore, is the perfect vacation getaway, " said Betty Bethel-Moss, Director - Florida Sales.
Among the shows included in The Islands of The Bahamas Imagination Series are PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure!, Disney Junior Live On Tour: Costume Palooza!, Cirque Dreams Holidaze, Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation, Dragons and Mythical Beasts, Blue’s Clues & YOU!, and Madagascar The Musical.
