The Gompertz Theatre
Click here to see
FST first purchased the industrial 160-seat Gompertz Theatre in 2002, and opened its doors during FST’s 30th season anniversary in 2004. This purchase changed the campus of FST, turning it into the three-theatre campus it is today (with the Keating Theatre and Goldstein Cabaret). The Gompertz Theatre seats 237 and has allowed for growth and expansion for Florida Studio Theatre, including the creation of the Stage III program, which presented a broad palate of theatre; from provocative plays like Edward Albee’s The Goat or entertaining comedies like Shear Madness. Also, by presenting the Mainstage series in both the Keating and the Gompertz, it allowed FST to reach an unprecedented 10,000 subscribers during its 2010-2011 season and 160,000 total attendees through all six of its major programs.
The Gompertz Theatre is on the corner of Cocoanut Avenue and First Street next to The Hegner Theatre Wing.
