Tales to be Told
There is no shortage of live entertainment on the Treasure Coast — from the Sunrise Theatre — an events venue that hosts over 100 performances per year, featuring acts from America’s rising comics to Grammy-winning artists— to the Vero Beach Opera, a 35-year-old Treasure Coast institution. And, the Lyric Theatre which, built in 1925 as a silent movie house, now hosts some of the region’s most exciting performers as well as a discovery series for young adults.
This region’s local companies also bring important pieces of theatre to life throughout the region. In Fort Pierce, the Pineapple Playhouse provides a series slew of main-stage and young-adult performances throughout the year; in Vero Beach, the United Ballet Academy performs classics such as the Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake; and, in Stuart, the Barn Theatre, a volunteer-based performing arts theatre, put’s on multiple shows annually and has done so for over 50 years.
Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach is a non-profit, professional producing theatre featuring Broadway musicals and plays. The Theatre also offers children’s programs, a lecture series, weekend comedy shows and live music.
The Vero Beach Theatre Guild, the area’s only community theatre, has delighted audiences with nationally recognized plays since 1958.
