The handsome, 90,000-square-foot arts center in the planned community of Pelican Bay houses two theatres, as well as painting, sculpture, and photography galleries.

Frances Pew Hayes Hall  is a 1,200-seat multipurpose space designed for music, theatre, dance and touring shows. The hall is the permanent home of the Naples Symphony Orchestra and the second home of the Miami City Ballet.  The hall also presents a wide variety of touring events like "Fiddler on the Roof,"  "A Chorus Line," and "Lost in Yonkers."  

The Myra Daniels Pavilion, named for the energetic community leader whose efforts brought about the Center, seats up to 300 patrons. It is a flexible studio theatre used for chamber music, cabaret, lectures, dance, as well as other events with less elaborate staging requirements than Hayes Hall.
