Theater Tampa – 3 Favorite Venues

Our next section lists nearly 100 Theaters Tampa FL. But we’re shining the spotlight on a few local favorites. If you haven’t caught shows in these beautiful venues, what are you waiting for?

Carrollwood Players Tampa, Carrollwood Main Stage Theater Tampa

Carrollwood Players Mainstage Theatre – Tampa

While it’s exciting to catch a touring Broadway show from time to time, isn’t community theater the best? You get to enjoy talent rivaling those big-name plays and musicals up close and personal.

The Carrollwood Players is a perfect example with its 80-seat Mainstage Theatre. Five rows and a Queen’s Box is all that’s keeping you from being on the stage with the cast. Carrollwood’s season is pretty much year-round with two to three-week-long runs.

We encourage you to buy (very affordable) tickets and see what the fuss is all about!


Stageworks Theater Tampa, theater in Tampa FL, Tampa's Stageworks Theater

Stageworks Theatre- Tampa

The company is “Tampa’s longest-running professional theatre company since 1983.” But Stageworks has only spent a decade in its Channel District home on Kennedy Blvd.

Stageworks Theatre holds 99, and tickets are primarily general admission. And with well-known works like Murder on the Orient Express or The Diary of Anne Frank, you know they’re hot tickets. So, buy early and arrive early!


The Mahaffey Theater Tampa, The Mahaffey Theater Duke Energy Center, The Mahaffey St Pete

The Mahaffey Theater – St. Petersburg

Theater Tampa extends to Tampa Bay and St. Pete, so it’s only fair to shine the spotlight on The beautiful Mahaffey. The Mahaffey – Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts has claimed a prime spot on the downtown waterfront since 1965. With 2,000 seats and its coveted location, it’s a great spot for Tampa Florida theater.

The venue is known for its top-notch tribute shows, but the calendar also includes prominent theatrical productions like Shen Yun. You can purchase tickets directly from The Mahaffey Theater website.
