Need for Project

Broward Center for the Performing Arts was established in 1984 when the Florida Legislature created the Performing Arts Center Authority (PACA) as part of a plan to build a performing arts center in Fort Lauderdale. Seven years later, the Center opened its doors and for 21 years has served the South Florida community, opening access to the arts for broad segments of local populations. Today, the Broward Center ranks as one of the busiest theater complexes in the US with more than 700 events and 600,000 visitors annually, has one of the largest free arts-in-education programs in the U.S. serving more than 150,000 students every year (2.4 million to date), and generates a $90 million contribution to the local economy annually.

With this success has come increasing demand for services, access, space, and programs. In two decades of growth, the population of Broward County increased 40% from 1.2 million in 1990 to 1.7 million in 2010. Cultural organizations, which numbered 350 in 1990, increased by more than 60% and now number 575. The Broward County school system, the 6th largest in the US, partners with the Broward Center to provide an average of 500 programs every year.

Over the years, the 590-seat Amaturo Theater has reflected the activity at the Broward Center, often servicing three events in a day. Cumulatively, it has presented 5,900 programs, welcomed more than 2.5 million visitors, and served as an incubator for more than 60 emerging artists and organizations under the banner of the Broward Center Arts Access program. It has also been the home of established institutions, diverse multicultural organizations, as well as a stop on the national tours of Off-Broadway shows, music and comedy acts and revues.

In order to remain viable in a competitive market and continue to serve the community, the Broward Center launched the $44 million Capital Replacement and Renewal Campaign to renovate, renew and revitalize the entire campus. The project will restore state-of-the-art facilities to the theaters; integrate technology including web-based distance learning and broadcast capabilities; add a multi-purpose events pavilion to increase access to artists, audiences and other public constituencies; and expand capacity for educational programming with a new Arts Education Center.

The Amaturo Theater Project is the final phase of that campaign.  For all its visible beauty, the Amaturo Theater is in need of repairs. Twenty years of activity have produced wear and tear on the facility. The seats squeak, the plumbing is stressed, the finishes are worn, and the lighting and sound systems are, as measured by 21st century technology, archaic.

The Amaturo Theater Project will return the theater to state-of-the-art, restore amenities to enhance the audience experience, introduce new systems for energy efficiency, maintain the theater as an outside resource classroom for Broward County public schools and provide a refreshed and safe environment for learning and entertainment. These upgrades and renovations are vital if the Amaturo Theater is to continue to provide a professional performance space for artists and a rewarding theater experience for audiences.

Operating Forecast Detail

The renovation of the Amaturo Theater will return the 20-year-old venue to state- of-the-art in technology replacing the existing lighting and sound to ensure that we continue to attract the finest artists, enhance the customer experience by creating a more compelling destination in an increasingly competitive environment, restore the physical plant to improve operating efficiency and extend the life of the asset, and increase capacity for education.

The renovation of the 590-seat Amaturo Theater will ensure that we continue to present popular and community-based programming including the resident performances of Gold Coast Jazz, Symphony of Americas, South Florida Symphony and Arts Ballet Theater, an eclectic mix of comedy, music, dance and film, sold-out sessions of the Broward Center summer theater camp, and the nationally recognized arts-in-education programming presented in partnership with the Broward County Schools serving more than 65,000 students in the Amaturo Theater annually.

Additionally, it is projected that the renovation will be the impetus to grow attendance and revenue by attracting new national, regional and local artists and by enhancing the customer experience to promote return visits. The customer experience will be enhanced through new seating, light and sound, and through new food, beverage, pre- and post-show entertainment options available throughout the Broward Center complex.  As a result of the renovation, it is projected that activity for the Amaturo Theater will begin to reverse the trend of eroding audiences as indicated in the following trend analysis:

FY2016         250              98146                392                 5.7%

* Closed 4 months for renovation.

The Amaturo Theater is operationally self-sustaining through several revenue streams, including ticket sales, rent, food & beverage and parking revenues.  The operating costs of the Amaturo Theater after renovation will actually decrease as a result of energy and technology efficiencies and a reduction in annual repair/maintenance gained from the renovation.  As a smaller theater in the larger Broward Center complex, there will not be any incremental administrative or programming costs as a result of operations post-renovation.  A schedule of changes in operational expenses and revenue follows:

Fiscal Stability

Coordinated efforts and strategic planning between the Performing Arts Center Authority (PACA) and Broward Performing Arts Foundation (BPAF) help to ensure the long-term stability of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. As of the close of the last fiscal year, September 30, 2011, PACA maintains unrestricted net assets of $3.91 million.  BPAF, the independent 501(c)(3) fundraising arm of the Center, has an endowment of $16.7 million; providing total endowment/savings of $20.6 million. The current debt level of the Broward Center is $1,899,426 (to finance HVAC energy upgrades in 2008) which is being reduced on average by $143,000 per year over a 14-year term.

Broward Center operations are based on a successful mix of earned revenues, contributed individual, foundation and corporate support, with local county and municipal funding that has assured the economic stability and growth of the Center. 81% of revenues are generated from ticket sales and other earned income. The primary sources of unearned income (19%) are private donations through BPAF, and corporate support. It is anticipated that this funding will continue at current levels or increase due to ongoing development efforts of the BPAF. The 40-year agreement between the Broward Center and the Broward County School Board ensures the continuation of extensive educational programs.  

With the completion of the ENCORE! capital campaign projected for January 2014, the new spaces and programs are expected to generate expanded revenue streams of $1.9 million annually (a margin contribution of $503,000).

Project Impact (up to 30 points)

Community Impact of Project

In many ways, the Amaturo Theater represents the heart and soul of the Broward Center, reflecting the diversity of our community both on stage and in the house. It is where the Broward Center mission comes to life. It is a cultural hall for everything from symphony concerts to student recitals, a town hall for civic organizations and community ceremonies, a stage for performances and a platform for discourse. It is also a classroom for the school district, presenting curriculum-related performances for students more than 100 school days a year.

The Amaturo Theater Project will allow Broward Center to maintain the breadth and depth of programming and services that have become its hallmark.  As the core venue for the Arts Access program, which nurtures South Florida talent, there will be more opportunities for the production of new works, as well as the presentation of both traditional and non-traditional programs such as spoken word, hip hop and Latin Gospel. The Amaturo offers a stage for exploration, a place where fusion performances take creative expression to a new level, allowing Broward Center to serve South Florida with a broad range of artistic and cultural genres and programs that are relevant to the entire community.  

Educational opportunities will increase. Upgrades in lighting and sound will allow the Amaturo Theater to become part of a teaching campus for a new vocational program in technical theater production. A Summer Jazz Institute will bring music students together with professional musicians for intensive performance training. For adult audiences, there will be lectures. For young audiences there will be enriched Learning through the Arts. The current Math & Science Day initiative, which turns the stage into a learning lab teaching scientific concepts through stagecraft, will be taken to a new level.

New technology will make the Amaturo Theater an attractive venue for broadcasting. Broward Center currently originates programming for distance learning to Broward County schools; it will now have the potential to stream new works and performances live from the Amaturo stage out to the world.  The upgrades will also make the venue attractive to film and television broadcasts.  An HBO comedy special taped on the stage brought national attention to Broward County.  An international piano festival was featured in a documentary in the United Kingdom. The planned upgrades will make the theater more competitive in this market.

Broward County is one of the most diverse communities in America. The Amaturo Theater will be able to expand its innovative range of programming that reflects this rich mosaic of cultures as local artists and cultural providers find that system upgrades have made presenting at the Broward Center more cost-effective and affordable.

Events like the annual Symphony of Americas Summerfest, Brazilian Press Awards, Latin Gospel Concert, Diwali Festival, and presentations with the Cultural Center of Spain, Indian Chamber of Commerce and others have attracted local, national, and international participation. The stage has become a place for creative collaboration where cultures blend and programming from around the world is showcased to local audiences. With the planned upgrades, its impact will continue to grow far beyond the theater walls.

Financial Impact of Project

As detailed in the Operating Forecast, the Amaturo Theater Project will have the following positive financial impacts:
- Increased ticket sales as a result of new artists expecting state-of-the-art light and sound technologies
- Increased food & beverage revenues as a result of an enhanced customer experience
- Reduced utility costs as a result of energy and technology efficiencies
- Reduced annual repair/maintenance costs as a result of HVAC and other physical plant improvements

As a smaller theater in the larger Broward Center multi-venue complex, there will not be any incremental administrative or programming costs as a result of operations post-renovation.

In the broader scope of the ENCORE! Capital Replacement and Renewal Project, the expansion and improvements introduced by the campaign are expected to provide revenue streams that will continue to support the long-term financial sustainability of the Broward Center. ENCORE! will update the theaters so that current programming standards (and operating capital) can be maintained. New and expanded vignettes (spaces), comprising 36,500 square feet are projected to generate new or expanded revenue streams of $1,900,000 annually (a margin contribution of $503,000). Creating a more compelling destination will secure the Broward Center position as a leading cultural/entertainment venue in an increasingly competitive environment.


Environmental Impact of Project

From the start of the Capital Replacement and Renewal Plan, there has been a clear focus on renewability, reusability and sustainability.  The design team has made environmental concerns a top priority. The project will result in resource efficiencies throughout the theater complex and a respect for the natural environment.

In the Amaturo Theater Project, replacement of the theatrical lighting system will yield energy savings through employment of new, low wattage-high efficiency theatrical lighting instruments from ETC lighting.  A performing arts center in Oregon installed ETC lighting in its theatrical space resulting in energy savings greater than 25%.  With HVAC upgrades, new air handlers will be more energy efficient.  The Center will work with professionals from TRANE following their "EarthWise" design approach to provide ideal HVAC system selection. The new carpet for the space will be provided by Desso, a European manufacturer widely recognized for its commitment to the environment. This company has moved beyond sustainability to eco-effectiveness, reducing energy consumption by more than 20% in the manufacturing process and putting recycled waste back into energy production. Additionally, the Amaturo will undergo upgrades to plumbing to ensure conservation and enhanced filtration of drinking water.

Within the scope of the larger project, we have a goal of achieving LEED Silver status with the new Event Pavilion construction. As a new building on the campus, it will be a model for green standards in the downtown.

Incorporating energy management systems into all aspects of the project, key staff having formed an environmental task force to identify and implement environmentally-friendly practices.  As a founding member of the Broadway League Green Alliance, the Center already focuses on waste management and recycling and disseminates best practices and tools for environmental management to staff, patrons, students and touring artists.

The project was undertaken in the context of the City of Fort Lauderdale New River Master Plan which offers standards for future development and open space improvements within the Riverwalk District.  Collaboration with the Master Plan working group has ensured that the Broward Center project embraces smart growth principles consistent with the downtown revitalization goals. Programming enhancements will activate Esplanade Park and increase activity along the Riverwalk.

The renovations will honor the Spanish Colonial flavor of the original structure. Materials will complement the existing stucco, wood and copper accents and Spanish tile roofs. The Pavilion will use a similar vocabulary of materials and incorporate generous quantities of glass and an operable window wall system to take advantage of natural light and airflow, offering views of the Riverwalk and New River. The Education Center addition will create a welcoming face to the west side of the facility, opening a more inviting streetscape.

From the use of native plants in landscaping to the terraced hillside leading down to the river, the campus opens up to its environment. Walls of glass bring the outdoors inside, and, everywhere, the Broward Center reflects and represents the community and the tropical environment is revered and respected.
