Owner description: Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg,the Progress Energy Center for the Arts—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.

I have the Florida Orchestra Series that performs in this Hall. The acoustics are good, the snack and champagne bars provide nice food and drink before and during intermission. The snack bar sells tasty desserts with coffee. The Concert Hall faces the Dali Museum

Saw the Nutcracker Suite (December) and Shen Yun (chinese interpretative and historical dance) here. The venue is easy to use (great parking), seats comfortable and almost all seating
has an excellent view and acoustics. Clean and safe on the St. Petersburg waterfront with many fine restaurants nearby.

The Miss Florida Teen Sunshine Pageant was at this theater. Hundreds of children performing on stage. The location on the marina was spectacular. The consessions were very expensive but I expected that ahead of time. It was an all around nice time. We were there for 5 days with the pageant. Oh and parking was normally free until the big event then it was only $5.00. Bonus STARBUCKS was across the street so I got my fix every day HAHA.

In the past months we have seen Gladys Knight and the Queen Tribute show, and both times were very pleased with the quality of programming and the expansive venue. The waterfront location adds to the feeling of an evening out, and seeing a music legend ten minutes from home is great! Easy parking and smooth flow of people within the property. An asset to the community.

Mahaffey Theatre is a one-of-a-kind place to see & hear some of the most talented bands and acts! I love the proximity of the stage in any seat and the sound of the music reverberating off the walls! Great place I tell you!
