Arts & Culture

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is pleased to announce the State of Florida has included $1,000,000 in its new budget to support FST’s efforts to provide workforce housing in its new Arts Plaza project. When asked about his support, Senator Jim Boyd commented, “The arts are essential to our community and I was happy to support Florida Studio Theatre; their expansion offers housing and employment, as well as reaching new theatre audiences.” Representative Fiona McFarland added, “This theatre has always offered top tier performances at affordable ticket prices, and they continue in that vein to build affordable housing for artists. They are a great cause to support.” FST’s Arts Plaza has been designed to meet a wide range of FST’s artistic needs while serving its robust and growing audience. This state-of-the-art building will be nestled amongst FST’s existing five-theatre campus in downtown Sarasota.
