An Important FST Announcement

As of May 11, we have come to the difficult conclusion that our Summer Season and Annual Sarasota Improv Festival cannot go on as originally planned. The health and safety of our audience, staff, and artists are paramount. Therefore, we must cancel the Summer Season and Festival.

The good news is that we believe we will be able to do some exciting programming in FST’s Court Cabaret and Bowne’s Lab restaurant environments. We will be announcing this special programming very soon.

We held back as long as we could on cancelling the Summer Season to see how the situation was going to evolve and whether a later start date would be possible. Summer subscribers will automatically have their subscriptions roll over into the 2021 Summer Season. In addition, they will receive special subscriber pricing to this summer’s offerings.

If you would like to make different arrangements for your Summer subscriptions, please call FST’s Subscription Hotline at 941.552.1521. Our Box Office team is ready to serve you from the safety of their homes.

Here at FST we are working hard behind the scenes planning for the future—a future when we can come back together. We are heartened by our audience. Over 75% of you have already renewed your subscriptions for the Winter Season. You, our audience, are our most important asset.

The most important thing you can do right now is keep your subscription to FST. We need to know—when we are distant from each other—that you are still with us, as we are with you.

We miss you and look forward to a brighter future together. Because when the curtain rises again, we want to see you there.
