ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
The Richard B. Baumgardner Center for the Performing Arts is located in Clearwater between the still waters of Tampa Bay and the sparkling beaches of Florida's Suncoast. It is convenient to all Tampa Bay communities and serves a wide five-county area. Ruth Eckerd Hall was nominated one of the top five concert halls in the United States by a nation-wide industry poll of technicians, artists and their management. It comfortably seats 2,180 for concerts, recitals, plays and special events. In addition to the 200 events presented annually by the center, community groups and nationally recognized arts organizations, including The Florida Orchestra, lease the venue. Our volunteers and staff warmly welcome visitors and artists to our acoustically perfect chamber.
