Florida Studio Theatre Dedicates Kretzmer Artist Housing Project

Expansion

BY SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY DEC 19, 2017

This December, Florida Studio Theatre held the official dedication for the opening of the Kretzmer Artist Housing Project located on Cohen Way in the growing Rosemary District. These five new townhomes help to fill the pressing need for quality housing that is safe, accessible and within close proximity to downtown. After breaking ground on the project back in October of 2016, the structure was completed just one year later in November of 2017. Along with Florida Studio Theatre’s tremendous growth in programming over the last 5 years, comes the growth of the artistic company and staff. FST currently houses over 100 guest artists and interns a year. These new townhomes include 20 bedrooms for visiting artists and young theatre professionals participating in the educational internship program. Project supporters, FST artists, Board members and FST staff all gathered to celebrate the completion of this new artistic home. Ernie Kretzmer, in loving memory of Alisa Kretzmer, contributed the lead gift to this new artist housing.
