Florida Studio Theatre Receives Grant from The Florida Division of Cultural Affairs

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY AUG 19, 2020

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is proud to announce that the nonprofit has received a grant for over $48,900 from the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs. These funds will provide vital support for several of FST’s core programs: Mainstage, Cabaret, Education, and New Play Development. “In these challenging times, grant support from agencies like the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs is essential,” said Rebecca Hopkins, FST’s Managing Director. “The arts have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 epidemic. We went from a company of over 90 full-time staff, front-of-house employees, and artists, to a group of about 30. This grant will help us have a strong reopening with our Winter Season in early 2021.” With this funding from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Sarasota’s Contemporary Theatre can advance its mission to “make theatre accessible and affordable to as many people as possible.”
