The historic centerpiece of the RP Funding Center is the 2,218 seat Youkey Theater. The theater is named for Robert Youkey, former Lakeland City Manager, who had the vision to build the Lakeland Center for his community. The theater is home to the annual Broadway & Special engagements; the Imperial Symphony Orchestra; and is ideally suited for dance events, plays and concerts. The theater also offers the flexibility for meetings and general sessions and other corporate events.
Performances of any nature would shine on the outstanding stage of the Youkey Theatre with its 39,000 square footage, 2,218 seating capacity, 6 private dressing rooms, and non-Union stage crew.
