Since 1978 American Stage has been dedicated to telling meaningful, compelling stories with integrity and professionalism.
As the Tampa Bay area’s longest-running, most critically-acclaimed professional theatre company, we seek to bring the power of quality live theatre to each generation in our community.
Powerful stories, boldly told. Through the telling of dynamic stories, live theatre has the power to unite us in our shared experiences and to deepen our connection to one another through the illumination of diverse perspectives.
We also train the next generation of artists and life-long learners with a focus on making theatre accessible to all. We offer Master Classes, Apprenticeships and Internships, Teen and Youth Classes and Summer Camps, Theatre Travel, In-School Performances, Student Matinees, and Teaching Artists who bring free playwriting and acting classes to schools. Find out more at americanstage.org/education.
Through our ASFWD The Next Generation Program, we offer youth initiatives, like the:
- Under 20 Pass (free mainstage tickets for under 20 years old, just call the box office to reserve)
- Under 30 Passport ($15 a month for unlimited mainstage shows, improv classes and more)
Check out our podcast, Spotlight, where we illuminate the artistry and ideas behind the theatrical stories and explore a variety of topics surrounding our programming. You can find it on Spotify, iTunes, and Google Play.
