Update: FST On COVID-19

Dear Friends and Patrons,

We hope that you and your families are safe and well.

While we have cancelled our Summer Seasons and Annual Sarasota Improv Festival, we are excited to be able to bring you special live musical and comedy entertainment along with educational opportunities – all at reduced capacities – this summer.

Now running through June 20, FST is entertaining outdoor diners with live musical entertainment by FST resident pianist Jim Prosser and Cabaret artist Alayna Gallo. With a full food and drink menu, diners can enjoy some of their favorite flavors of the theatre along with some of their favorite songs.

FST Improv, too, is back in action – serving up an evening of laughter every Friday and Saturday. While maintaining six-feet of distance, audiences and artists are thrilled to be able to connect through comedy.

Summer Theatre Camp is also in full swing on our downtown Sarasota campus. With in-person offerings for students ages 7-17, participants build self-confidence along with acting, improvisation, and singing, skills.

The health and safety of our audience, staff, and artists remains paramount. When you join us at the theatre, you know you’re visit has been carefully prepared for by restaurant, education, and event planning professionals who take your health to heart. Because when the curtain rises again, we want to see you there.

We miss you and look forward to a brighter future together. In the meantime, we are pleased to serve you with these special musical, comedy, and educational offerings until the house lights go down, and all of you, of our valued audience members and subscribers, light up our theatres once more.
