Duke Energy Center for the Arts - Mahaffey Theater

Duke Energy Center

Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg, the newly renovated Duke Energy Center for the Arts - The Mahaffey Theater is a 2,031-seat cultural jewel featuring elegant ballroom space, spectacular waterfront views, and European box-style seating. Just steps away from the culturally vibrant Downtown and minutes away from white sandy beaches and world-famous museums, The Mahaffey hosts top-quality national and international artists and performances – Broadway, classical, pop, rock, comedy, dance, family, and the renowned Florida Orchestra. Additionally, the theater supports the highly successful Class Acts program, which enables school children to experience the performing arts through in-theater performances as well as in-school outreach and extension programs.The facility first opened in the Spring of 1965 as part of the Bayfront Center entertainment complex. It was first renovated in 1987-1988 and at that time was renamed The Mahaffey Theater for the Performing Arts, for a St. Petersburg family who contributed significantly to the capital campaign.
