Funding Arts Broward (FAB!), a nonprofit volunteer-based arts organization committed to supporting, sustaining and enriching the arts in Broward County, will present its Fall Luncheon on Tuesday, October 15, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., at Broward Center for the Performing Arts’ Mary N. Porter Riverview Ballroom. The arts celebration will feature special guest speaker Martin Childers, managing director of Island City Stage, an organization creating quality theatrical experiences that focus on the LGBTQ community, but have a heart and soul that is truly universal. Live entertainment will be courtesy of the company’s talented performers.
Martin Childers has served as the managing director of the award-winning Island City Stage since 2016. During his brief tenure, he’s been instrumental in elevating the theatre group’s profile by adding more diverse and entertaining experiences including musicals to recent seasons. He’s sought out new works from local and national playwrights that positively impact the LGBT and general community including “Daniel’s Husband” from playwright Michael McKeever that had its world premiere at Island City Stage before moving to New York City. A former actor, Childers also served as the executive director of one of Kentucky’s longest-running professional theatres, the Jenny Wiley Theatre, for 15 years. Under his leadership, the theatre flourished with increased programming, staff and building expansions.
