The ground upon which the Phillips Center will sit was officially broken in June of 2011; barring any unforeseen setbacks, the Center plans to debut in 2014. Funded in part with a large grant from the Disney Corporation (which will lead to the Center’s largest hall being named after Disney), the Phillips Center aims to replace the aging Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, which has been a staple of Orlando’s performing arts scene since the late 1920s. It will consist of three separate indoor performance areas – a large amplified hall suited for touring Broadway shows; a smaller acoustic hall; and an intimate, 300-seat community theater – as well as an outdoor plaza and performance area.
