Straz Center for the Performing Arts

The Straz Center is more than a beautiful riverside facility with six theater spaces and an on-site, accredited performing arts conservatory. We are also a presenting, producing and educating institution, a community resource, and the cultural cornerstone for a richly diverse Tampa Bay region. Our programming serves more than 600,000 people each year and includes Broadway tours, grand opera, ballet and contemporary dance, theater, comedy, music and more. Overall, the Straz Center’s arts education and community engagement programs serve over 50,000 people of all ages each year and include on-site training in music, dance and theater as well as extensive off-site outreach to more than 40 community partners across the region. The Straz’s institution-wide Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility initiative launched in 2019 and is detailed on our website:

We are mission-driven to inspire, educate and enhance our entire community through the transformative power of the performing arts. House capacities: 100 to 2,600
