From the Director...
Welcome to the 25th Anniversary Season of "Broadway on Brevard"!
This is a season of Celebration, of Reflection and of Inspiration! Although we have been creating productions consistently for 24 years, The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse is celebrating a rich history of 90 years of service to our community.
Built in 1924, and on the National Register of Historic Places as "The Aladdin", our historic theatre has served with purpose throughout the years. The original owners held the vision and dreams for a successful future and, here we are, 90 years later, keeping their dream alive! Whether it was silent movies, vaudeville, serving as a Red Cross Station during wartime or the crowning of the "King and Queen" of the "Orange Jubilee", we reflect on and celebrate our historic theatre in this, our 25th Season!
The inspiration of a new season and the honor of serving our community rings strong through each of our productions and brings a thrilling theatrical experience whether you are onstage performing, in the audience viewing, our part of the "behind the scenes" support, THIS is the YEAR of celebration for our theatre! "Broadway on Brevard", "Stars of Tomorrow" and our "Broadway Bonus" productions feature local volunteer performers and we encourage you to join us by auditioning. We will train you and help build your performing skills. Regardless of your level of accomplishment, we welcome you.
A year that offers something for everyone's "theatrical taste", a year for training of our young people and preparing them for their journey in life, and opportunities for individual artists....this is a year of excitement! This is a season which features a broad spectrum of entertainment and new opportunities. We hope that you will join us and, together, we will bring another rich year of positive influence to all those who walk through our doors.
We thank each of you for your support and hope that you will celebrate with us this year from opening to closing!
Information is available online to assist you or we may be reached by calling our box office at (321) 636-5050
We are here to serve through the performing arts. We believe in our organization and in our community!
From my heart,
Dr. Anastacia Hawkins-Smith
