About The MAR St. Pete

Located within the St Petersburg City Theatre, The MAR St. Pete is a performing arts incubator that provides education and expertise for creators, teachers, dancers, actors, musicians, and more to develop their skills and move from student to professional. It's a place where small performing businesses or individuals can explore the world of performance and be guided along the way. We provide a safe and supportive environment where everyone is encouraged to make mistakes, grow, and learn. #MistakesAreRequired

The Founders

They imagined a hub for artists to create, collaborate, and strengthen the local performing arts community. That was the dream and that’s what The MAR is to them!
