While emphasizing health and safety and mandating socially distanced seating configurations and the wearing of masks, on Friday, Oct. 2, the Straz Center cautiously and thoughtfully began a slate of live, in-person performances — the first performances at The Straz in more than six months. 

The campus came back to life with performances of Jobsite’s Theater’s delightfully comedic The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] which laid the groundwork for a whole host of programming opportunities that will utilize our Riverwalk Stage and the intimate Jaeb Theater to create experiences that feature an eclectic bunch of artists and welcome all members of our diverse community.

So that all may comfortably and safely enjoy these performances, health and safety protocols have been established for all who visit The Straz campus.

The Straz Center’s health and safety protocols have been developed in accordance with CDC and OSHA guidelines and after consultation with medical experts, including doctors from Tampa General Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, the University of Pennsylvania and The George Washington University.
