Eight O'Clock Theatre, Inc.

A nonprofit organization

Throughout the years of community theatre performances, Eight O'Clock Theatre has grown through the talent and support of those who encourage, celebrate and participate in the performing arts.

Since 1982, Eight O'Clock Theatre has entertained theatre-goers in the Tampa Bay area with live performances, bringing Broadway, Off-Broadway and original productions to the stage, first in the Largo Community Center, and, since 1996, in the Tonne Playhouse at the Largo Cultural Center, now called the Central Park Performing Arts Center.

We believe in the power of the arts to transform lives and enrich our community. With your help, we can continue to create unforgettable moments on stage, inspire creativity, and foster a sense of togetherness that theatre uniquely provides. Eight O'Clock Theatre strives to produce high-quality productions that entertain, educate, and inspire. The arts have the power to touch hearts and minds, and your support helps us share these transformative experiences with our community.

We believe in providing a platform for local talent to shine. Your generosity directly supports actors, directors, designers, and crew members, enabling them to hone their skills and pursue their passion in art. Theatre brings people together like nothing else. It fosters a sense of belonging, encourages dialogue, and strengthens the bonds within our community. We want to help create a vibrant and connected atmosphere. 

We are committed to making the arts accessible to all. Your support is an investment in the arts and culture of our community. It ensures that we can continue to innovate, take risks, and push the boundaries of what's possible in theatre. Your donation is a vital step toward our mission of enriching lives and sharing stories on stage.
