Florida Studio Theatre Finalist For Many WEDU Be More Awards

Florida Studio Theatre is pleased to announce its selection as a finalist in several categories of the 2013 WEDU Be More Awards, presented by WEDU - West Central Florida's primary PBS station. The WEDU Be More Awards highlight the best work from area 501(c)(3) organizations. They have come to be known as the "Academy Awards for Nonprofits." Winners will be announced at the WEDU Be More Awards ceremony on February 21st.
Florida Studio Theatre is being considered for three awards this year. The Be More Knowledgeable: Education Outreach Award recognizes programs that offer guidance, knowledge, emotional support, and mentorship to the community. The Be More Encouraged: Judge's Award recognizes an organization that is appealing due to its extraordinary approach to its projects. The Be More Unstoppable: Nonprofit of the Year Award recognizes an organization displaying overall excellence. FST is honored to be nominated in these categories.
The WEDU Be More Award nominations also recognize FST's overall organizational excellence.
Florida Studio Theatre was founded by artist Jon Spelman in 1973 as an alternative touring
group, reaching out to isolated and underserved audiences in nursing homes, migrant farms
and prisons. In 1977, FST acquired its current theatre in Sarasota's historic Woman's Club
building and started off with a modest subscription base of 103. Today, Florida Studio Theatre
is a village of theatres: the historic Keating Theatre, the Parisian-style Goldstein Cabaret, the
newly renovated Gompertz Theatre and adjoining Hegner Theatre Wing, which houses the John
C. Court Cabaret and the Bowne Lab Theatre scheduled to open in 2014. In accordance with
its mission "to make theatre accessible and affordable to as many people as possible," Florida
Studio Theatre serves over 160,000 attendees per year through its six major programs.
