NOW PLAYING – Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves is a HIT!
Florida Studio Theatre’s hit Cabaret production, Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves is NOW PLAYING in the John C. Court Cabaret.
Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves by Rebecca Hopkins and Richard Hopkins with arrangements by Jim Prosser celebrates the women who have captivated the world with their dynamic personalities and fierce vocals.
This cast member Jannie Jones’ 16th FST Cabaret production. Jones shares her experience over the years stating, “My very first show at FST was My Castle’s Rockin, directed by Richard Hopkins. Richard and I bonded as actor to Director and friend. He brought me back year after year, sometimes twice a year. It’s been great because I’ve gotten to learn and sing genres of music that I would not have been called in for at auditions and I love this.”

They came together to make music, they ended up making history.
FST’s Winter Mainstage season kicks off with Million Dollar Quartet on November 9 in the Gompertz Theatre.
This smash-hit production, tells the story of legendary music icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins coming together for one unforgettable night. Get ready to rock along with the TONY AWARD-WINNING musical that captures the most seminal moment in rock and roll history.
Director Jason Cannon explains FST’s approach to this musical. “This show is a ‘peek behind the curtain.’ This wasn’t a pre-planned event, and if you listen to the actual album you can hear the casual joy in their impromptu jam session. They fiddle with piano keys and guitar strings, try out goofy riffs on the drums. They joke and tease and slalom from gospels to holiday tunes to their favorite hits. Sun Records was a special place to these four artists, and they were never so comfortable recording anywhere else. That nostalgic and bittersweet intimacy, which gets lost in larger theatres, is what the Gompertz can capture.
Filled with electric sounds and unforgettable characters, Million Dollar Quartet is the first production of the Winter Mainstage subscription. See four shows for as little as $59. Subscriptions are available for purchase by calling the Box Office at (941) 366-9000 or by visiting us online.
