For more than 20 years, The Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College has stayed focused on its mission to be the affordable, professional performing arts venue for West Central Florida. Both Hough Hall, our mainstage, and our intimate Side Door Cabaret have earned “Best of the Bay” recognition for many years.

Arts organizations, such as St. Petersburg Opera, The Florida Orchestra, The Master Chorale, the Pinellas Youth Symphony, Tampa Bay Symphony, the Academy of Ballet Arts, and dozens of others consider the Palladium their performance home.

The theater is also the home of jazz, blues, chamber music, dance, stand-up comedy and so many other genres of music. Local entertainment magazine Creative Loafing honored the Palladium as the top spot for jazz in the Tampa Bay region.

As part of our mission, the theater has built strong relationships with the professional performers and artists in our area. This year we will expand that support with a new Palladium Resident Artist program that provides direct funding to local artists to create new work which will later debut at the Palladium.

While we aren’t able to welcome audience and performers into the theater during this shutdown, I hope you will continue to support our mission by making a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of the Palladium Fund.  Follow this link to make a donation.

Thanks for your ongoing support of the Palladium at St. Petersburg College and we hope to see you here for more memorable live performances very soon.

Paul Wilborn,
Executive Director
