SUPPORT THE BROWARD CENTER
THE SHOW WILL GO ON
It is quiet at the Broward Center these days. And while our stages may be dark, we are hard at work behind the scenes, preparing for the day when the curtain will rise again and we welcome you back to the theater. Our organization has not been spared the impact of COVID-19. Institutionally and individually, the cancellation of all performances and events has taken its toll, but we continue to find ways to engage our community and bring people together through the arts in the virtual world. As an example, our education department is offering free, online classes to students and families throughout South Florida and beyond with Broward Center Education at Home. And while we are staying connected, we know that it is not the same as being here. We are steadfast in our commitment to raise the curtain again and welcome you back to the theater. With your help the show will go on.
Please consider a gift to the Broward Center. We are a resilient organization, but we will need your support to get through the difficult times ahead, ensure that we emerge as a gathering place for all and continue to fulfill our mission to build community through the arts. Until we meet again, stay safe and be well.
