The Performing Arts Center is known for its small town intimate atmosphere with big city acoustics and performances. Broadway musicals, opera, and plays, classical, folk, and Celtic concerts are presented in each year-round season lineup.
This beaux arts-style building was originally constructed as a school in 1925 following the plans of noted Florida architect Emmett Hull. After the building was no longer used by the school board, the City of Tarpon Springs purchased it and, with the help of historic preservation grants, restored it in 1987 (the City’s centennial year). It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
