Be A Part of the Art
Florida Studio Theatre is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization serving over 200,000 attendees each year through its diverse programs: the Mainstage Series, Cabaret Series, Stage III, FST Improv, Children's Theatre, Education, and New Play Development. Through these programs and the five unique theatres that house them, FST speaks to wide variety of community needs and artistic dreams. "For the last five decades we have been bringing contemporary theatre to the community, giving voice to new playwrights, developing new works, and educating children and adults in the power of theatre. FFST was founded by an artist and continues to be led by artists−with actors, designers and writers holding key leadership positions. We are fervent in our belief that theatre should not be a privilege of the few, but should benefit everyone.
FST donors share in our belief that by investing in the art, we are able to create transformational experiences that extend beyond the stage. Whether Underwriting one of our shows, providing a scholarship to a young student in our education program, or securing our future through a gift to our capital or endowment campaigns, FST donors are an essential part of our artistic team.
