Tarpon Springs, Florida is well known for its "sponge docks", an area which promotes the Greek community's sponge diving with many gift shops featuring guess what, sponges! Greek restaurants are also present but recently I learned about their performing arts center which has a series of shows at reasonable prices held most of the year in two small theaters.
This season we attended shows at the theater in the former city hall and an adjacent building now called the cultural center. We saw The Brothers Four one night, a couple brass quintets on two nights and yesterday we watched Cirque Zuma Zuma, described as an African Cirque Soleil. (sp?) That show was sold out. It was a great evening.
Our experiences have always been positive. Tickets can be bought and seats are reserved in advance. Street parking is free and easy to find close to the building. There's a small parking lot, too.
I'm already looking forward to our next visit.
