FREE PARKING AT THE PALADIN PLAYHOUSE...ALWAYS!!!
It's very important that we make this clear as it has come to our attention that, despite Director Jason Zembuch's request to football parent volunteers that they specifically ask whether a guest is visiting the school for the football game or one of our productions (currently The Crucible) so as to determine if they should collect a parking fee, these volunteers have not be doing that and in fact, one particular football parent volunteer told Director Zembuch that she was NOT going to do that because they need to raise $7k for uniforms!
This parent clearly had no consideration of the fact that our production of The Crucible costs money to produce too. In fact, we are in the hole nearly $8,000...money we make back through ticket sales, playbill advertising, concessions and our own fundraisers. What we do not do is charge for parking and we do not expect our theater patrons to pay for parking to support the football program.
So please be aware....if you are attending a show and it happens to coincide with a football game, make sure you tell any football parent volunteer that asks you for a parking fee that you are there for a Paladin Playhouse theater production and that the Paladin Playhouse never charges a parking fee.
Now Accepting Donations!
So you can't make evey show or fundraiser. We understand. Your life is busy. But you can still help and we have just made it easier to do that!! We have set up a way to donate to the South Plantation High School theater program! Please consider making a donation to the program. We receive ZERO dollars from the Broward School District. We have to raise all the money needed to produce our shows. That's why we need your help. So, if you can, please make a small donation. Our program changes lives.

Theater For The Deaf Style at South Plantation High School
You may not be aware but South Plantation High School is recognized as the only cluster school in the Broward School District for the deaf and hard of hearing. Because of this unique status, theater program director Jason Zembuch chooses to direct all productions in a style known as "Theater For The Deaf" with all mainstage productions being performed in both voice and sign language. Come to a show and experience a "Theater For The Deaf" production for yourself and discover the beauty of a performance in both voice and sign language!
